Welcoming Our Ospreys from Overseas

Galloway, N.J. –Stockton University welcomed three new Ospreys to campus this week, but they are not typical Ospreys. These students traveled from France, Japan and Taiwan to participate in Stockton’s Student Exchange Program.

Stockton is certified by the United States Department of State to sponsor exchange students and facilitate their entry into the country under the J-1 cultural and educational visa program.

"Through the exchange program, Stockton students are sent to partner institutions in other countries, and those institutions send their students to us,” said Stockton International Student Adviser Yibin Feng. “This is a great opportunity that's highly beneficial for all students involved.”

Below are the new faces you’ll see around campus this semester. Be sure to say hello!
