The Bilkent University International Center recently organized a Farewell and New Years Party for Fall Semester Visiting and Exchange students. These students, coming from different countries, said that they all had enjoyed their semester here at Bilkent, both socially and academically.
During their stay, the International Center and Bilkent International Students Club helped the students with the small everyday hurdles that affect individuals living in foreign countries. We look forward to hosting another group of newcomers next semester!
