Every year Penn’s community is exposed to different cultures. These diverse cultures are often brought here by foreign exchange students. However, that switch from mother country to foreign country can be lonely and difficult.

FESA is a group trying to make it an easier transition.  FESA, or Foreign Exchange Student Ambassadors, is a group of Penn students trying to ease the transition foreign students have to make from their homeland to the unfamiliar United States of America.

Penn students can still join FESA.  For more information about joining the club, contact seniors Victoria Erdel and Ashleigh Tarkington.

The club’s goals are to foster life-long friendships, help students gain self-knowledge, and to cultivate cultural and language awareness.

Meetings will be announced soon!
