The video project Global Voices at Ohio University aims to increase Ohio University faculty, staff, and students’ awareness of the issues specific to international students on campus, their life in Athens, and their adjustment to the American system of education. The videos capture international students reflecting on their experiences at Ohio University, challenges they face, and the benefits of the immersion into the diverse campus community. They also give tips to the new international students, faculty, and staff on how to enhance their global experience at Ohio University.
