Campus Champion

Diya Digvijay Singh, a junior fitness development major, spent break visiting her family at her home in India for the first time in two years. She returned to campus in mid-January to help shuttle our 15 new international students from airports and train and bus stations. Diya’s international experiences make her the perfect International Programs ambassador for students coming to Cortland from other countries. “Our international students are the most interesting people you could know,” Diya says, “They love to share stories about their cultures.” She recommends getting to know them. Visit International Programs online to learn more about how to connect with these students.
