Alabama’s International University lived up to its name as Troy University welcomed a group of military officers from around world to campus.
Twenty-five officers from sixteen different countries who are taking part in the International Officers School at Maxwell Air Force base in Montgomery visited TROY on Friday.
“These are very important military officers from across the world that have come to Troy University to learn more about American education, to learn more about American media,” says Lecturer Stefanie East. “I have spoken to them before at Maxwell about media ethics and this time they said ‘Can we come to you?’ and I said of course because that way you get to come and see TROY, see what we have to offer.”
While at TROY the officer got to meet with Troy University international students from their home countries and even participate in East’s interviewing class by getting interviewed by future journalists.
“I was really excited that my students got to meet with people from an entirely different place, an entirely different location, an entirely different culture,” says East. “They got to learn more about the person, about their culture, what they expected to learn as a part of the International Officers School.”
