More than 200 international students (including more than 100 international graduate students) attend ETSU, and these students contribute vitally to the cultural life of our institution and to our academic programs. The Computer Science, Technology, Mathematics, Biochemistry, Chemistry, and Public Health programs, especially, have been enriched by the participation of international students.

The Office of International Programs holds International Orientation programs every semester to welcome international students to ETSU, and the OIP also helps process immigration forms and provides information and support to students. In addition, the International Student Organization at ETSU holds social events, such as picnics, for its members (International Frequently Asked Questions). International students have also participated actively in ETSU’s Graduate and Professional Student Association, serving as officers and key contributors.

In recent years, ETSU has developed a rewarding relationship with the University of Buea in Cameroon. Dr. Tom Huang of Chemistry and Dr. Janice Huang of Mathematical Sciences visited Cameroon and taught at the University of Buea on a Fulbright fellowship in the 2001-2002 academic year. The Huangs have posted a web diary of their year in Cameroon. As a result of the Huangs’ teaching in Cameroon, currently nine students from the University of Buea attend graduate programs at ETSU.
