9. Stetson University
Head over to Stetson if you plan to change the world. Students like Stetson alumna Florencia Abelenda join the campus to extend their help across country borders. Originally from Argentina, in her sophomore year Abelanda started a tutoring and empowerment program for migrant communities. The school makes international students feel incredibly welcome. Their program “Stetson Visits You” reaches potential students in Brazil, Turkey and Vietnam to lay out the welcome mat before they arrive in the states. Once on campus, the community feel continues. Professor Paris, an international business professor, started a club to help international students find work. “[Professor Paris] typically brings in one employer a week with an open position and an international student can get hired right away by the employer,” Stetson senior and Vietnamese international student Linh Pham said. “This is tremendous support for international students because it is usually harder for us to find jobs in the U.S.”
