Campus Tours Provide a Peek at College Life
Seeing is believing and college tours are a great way for students to get an up close and personal glimpse of campus life. This is especially true for international students, as where they choose to attend college is sure to be their home away from home.
Team Africa, a group of 17 South African soccer students, visited campus on Monday, July 30, 2018, with their coach, alumnus Tabani Sithole, a former international F-1 student and tennis player from Zimbabwe. Their visit was coordinated by Immigration Specialist Iris Quinn-Johnson and College Connect International, sponsored by United Soccer Africa.
“It’s amazing to be back home and to share this experience with a group of potential students, showing them where I was groomed, sharing my Wildcat experience, and introducing them to my second mom, Mrs. Quinn-Johnson,” said Sithole.
The delegation ranged in age from 16 to 20-years old and members were selected from a larger group of 250 students to travel internationally. Their 12-day college tour also included actual playing time in Orlando before their return to South Africa.
"Bethune-Cookman University is an international community and currently has students representing more than 28 countries," said Quinn-Johnson. "The students were delighted to visit and hope to return and play Wildcat soccer in the future.”
