The Northern Nevada International Center at the University of Nevada, Reno is proud to host the Fulbright Gateway Orientation annually. The Gateway Orientation is intended to prepare visiting Foreign Fulbright graduate students for a new life as an international graduate student in the United States while providing exposure to American culture, including its academic, financial, and legal systems.
The Northern Nevada International Center prepares an exciting agenda in August aimed to orient Fulbright graduate students with the complexities and nuances of living and studying in the United States. Fulbright students meet and network with local and state community leaders and spend orientation hours participating in valuable educational sessions, getting to know the university’s beautiful campus, and most importantly experience the various slices of American life through multiple excursions and activities. Finally, Fulbright participants have the chance to meet over 70 other incoming Fulbright students and scholars from all over the world.
Cultural activities range from meeting and speaking with Americans in their own homes, a traditional Basque five course feast, mingling with Fulbright alumni and Rotarians , exploring the heritage of Nevada, and finally enjoying the beautiful views of Lake Tahoe with a sunset dinner on the beach.
This activity is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs as part of its Fulbright Program, the U.S. government’s flagship international exchange program supported by the people of the United States and partner countries around the world.
