CAL STATE L.A. STUDENTS SELECTED AS 1996-97 INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMS PARTICIPANTS

Los Angeles, November 22, 1996 -- The California State University (CSU) International Programs recently selected six California State University, Los Angeles students to participate in the 1996-97 Study Abroad program. The program, accommodating a variety of majors, is offered in cooperation with 70 recognized universities and other institutions of higher education from 17 countries around the globe.

Among the six Cal State L.A. students, three have begun a course of study at the University of Aix-Marseille, France, through the International Programs. They are Alhambra resident Arolyn H. Archuleta, graduate student in Psychology; and undergraduate Art majors Roxanna P. Fiallo, La Palma resident, and Rosanna Bojorquez, Los Angeles resident.

The other three students include: Los Angeles resident Daniel Tamayo, graduate student in Political Science, who is studying at University of Madrid, Spain; Redondo Beach resident Heather A. Welch, English major, who is attending University of Florence, Italy; and South Pasadena resident Colette Ostrye, graduate student in Music, who was selected to study at University of Paris, France.

Every year, the International Program offers students from each University in the CSU system the opportunity to continue their studies overseas for a full academic year while they remain co-enrolled at their home campus through the International Programs. The students earn resident credit for all academic work completed while abroad, and remain eligible to receive any form of financial aid (other than work-study) for which they can individually qualify.

The primary mission of the CSU International Programs is to develop intercultural communication skills and international understanding among its students.
