   A Survey of SUNY Potsdam's International Students

During my sophomore year at SUNY Potsdam, I registered for the ESL practicum course through Dr. Lunt and international education. The whole experience shaped my interests and future decisions. While my conversation partners expressed their sincere satisfaction in attending SUNY Potsdam as international students, they also mentioned some difficulties that they experienced.

When I heard about the Presidential Scholars program I immediately decided that my proposal would involve surveying international student satisfaction on campus. I will present my findings and make appropriate recommendations to departments in order to improve SUNY Potsdam’s international program towards the end of the Spring 2005 semester.
