On September 12, 2014, the IUP Office of International Education took a group of 50 international students to New York City. Students engaged in a range of activities, including city tours, shopping, biking, visiting museums, and more.

We had beautiful weather, and, for most students, this was their first trip within the U.S. We asked students, “What did you enjoy the most about NYC?” Here are a few responses:
