Produced by Melissa Terry from interviews recorded by StoryCorps, a national nonprofit whose mission is to provide people of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories of our lives. www.storycorps.org
In early September, the Office of International Education at Georgia Tech, partnered with StoryCorps Atlanta and WREK to record interviews between members of the Tech community.
Interviewees included undergraduate and graduate students, professors, administrators, spouses of students, and the First Lady of Georgia Tech.
These stories highlight some of the amazing global experiences and diversity of our community.
This project was a part of International Education Week (IEW), a national celebration of the benefits of international exchange.
