Brazilian students sweep NC State student engagement awards

The Global Training Initiative (GTI) celebrated on April 17 the 400 international and American students at North Carolina State University who participated in the International Cultural Leadership Program (ICLP).

Students donated more than 400 hours to community service projects in addition to meeting throughout the semester for academic workshops, cultural events, and recreational opportunities. Participants received points for each engagement event or service activity and scores of students engaged in multiple activities this semester.

They contributed to numerous community service projects with nonprofit partners like the Raleigh City Farm, the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, the Miracle League of the Triangle, the Kramden Institute, and the City of Raleigh’s Parks and Recreation Department.

The top three winners with the most points (and the most hours donated) this semester were three Brazilian students who are studying this year at NC State University through the Brazil Scientific Mobility Program (BSMP): Noemi Vergopolan da Rocha, Gabriel Octavio Mendes de Oliveira e Britto, and Guilherme Mateus Magalhaes.

While dealing with the stresses (and joys) that come along with studying abroad, these three students completed more than 240 hours of international engagement on campus and throughout the community combined this semester.
