Los Angeles, November 22, 1996 -- The California State
University (CSU) International Programs recently selected six
California State University, Los Angeles students to participate
in the 1996-97 Study Abroad program. The program, accommodating
a variety of majors, is offered in cooperation with 70 recognized
universities and other institutions of higher education from 17
countries around the globe.
Among the six Cal State L.A. students, three have begun a course
of study at the University of Aix-Marseille, France, through the
International Programs. They are Alhambra resident Arolyn H.

Art majors Roxanna P. Fiallo, La Palma resident, and Rosanna

A. Welch, English major, who is attending University of Florence,
Italy; and South Pasadena resident Colette Ostrye, graduate

Every year, the International Program offers students from each
University in the CSU system the opportunity to continue their
studies overseas for a full academic year while they remain co-enrolled
at their home campus through the International Programs. The
students earn resident credit for all academic work completed
while abroad, and remain eligible to receive any form of financial
aid (other than work-study) for which they can individually qualify.
The primary mission of the CSU International Programs is to develop
intercultural communication skills and international understanding
among its students.
