Zone 5 is committed to learning, expanding, and working with organizations beyond borders at all twists and turns. In honor of last week being International Education Week (#IEW2014), we would like to send a shout out to some of our clients in the higher education sector who really apply themselves and create opportunities for their students to experience beyond borders as well!
Across the world, students have been learning about a variety of disciplines for decades. Marshall University’s 51st annual International Festival demonstrates just that by having an annual exposition that features international foods, world music and dance, as well as a multitude of displays representing many different countries and cultures. Check out some the photos below showcasing the talent and cultural breadth that this event offers each year to its students and members of the surrounding community:

At St. Thomas Aquinas College students are taking a hands on approach to cultural experience through not only their study abroad programs in regions like Oxford, England but also through service learning trips across the globe! This past spring, students were fortunate enough to learn and soak in all that Nicaragua has to offer while assisting to build homes for families through the Bridges to Community Organization program.
Additionally, these higher education organizations have students from other areas around the world that are coming to the United States to enhance their education, which according to IDP is leading in quality collegiate programming.
See the infographic below for other aspects and countries and how they rank:

So, in honor of International Education Week, Zone 5 would like to state how proud we are to work with such wonderful organizations and to be an international firm through our work with our friends to the north at Algoma University!
