Documentary Film on International Students to be held April 10 at SWOSU

A debut of a documentary film, “Welcome to Oklahoma: Acclimation and Treatment of International Students in Western Oklahoma” by Daniel Thompson will be shown Tuesday, April 10, on the campus of Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.

The documentary explores how international students at SWOSU perceive their interactions with both members of the university and City of Weatherford communities. The participants discuss the positive and challenging aspects of sojourning to a new environment to pursue their dreams of an American education.

The film will be shown at 6:30 p.m. in Old Science Building Room 208 on the SWOSU campus. Students, faculty, staff and the general public are invited to attend. The event is free of charge.

The Department of Art, Communication, and Theatre is sponsoring the Tuesday showing. The film was part of an independent study project that Thompson worked with Dr. Elaine L. Davies n the Communication Arts division.
