Imagine what it takes to relocate to another country to study: All the paperwork, packing, saying goodbyes, anxiety, excitement, travel, jet lag, finding a place to live, new food, new friends, new experiences, culture shock, etc. Now imagine doing all that in a global pandemic, with COVID-19, travel bans and difficulty getting a visa.
UWM enrolled 86 new international students for spring 2021, which aligns with new enrollment numbers we typically see each spring. 86 people started a life-changing journey to become part of the Panther family.
A giant shout out to these new students and thank you to everyone who has helped (or will help) UWM’s new international students feel welcome!
