Class of 2019 international student outcomes

Centre College’s Class of 2019 recently graduated 24 international students—one from Canada, 17 from China, one from Germany and five from Vietnam.

“I admire each class of international students who have joined the Centre family,” said Stephen Swan, assistant director for the Center for Global Citizenship and international student services. “For many of them, when they arrived on campus, it was the first time they had set foot in the United States. I admire each and every one of these young men and women for their courage to join us from around the world, as well as for their determination to make this place their home, rise above the challenges and come out better on the other side.”

This group of international students are all either pursuing graduate studies or have found jobs in their fields. Students who are traveling home either have jobs or are preparing for graduate school.

“I would be mistaken if I neglected to thank our international students for all they have contributed to our community,” Swan added. “I can say that without a doubt they have made Centre a more ‘global’ institution, and for that, we will be in their debt. They have brought their ideas, work ethic, culture and perspectives to this small school in rural Kentucky.

“Today, when you walk around campus, you will hear as many as 16 different languages,” he continued. “Next year, the international students’ classes following in their footsteps on Centre’s campus will be made up of young men and women from over 20 countries.”
