ASU Soccer hosts International Student Day Friday

Jonesboro (ASU) – The Arkansas State soccer team will hold its second annual International Students Day at the ASU Soccer Complex, Friday during their match against Oral Roberts which kicks off at 4 p.m.

All international students are urged to come out and bring the flag of their home nation. All international students in attendance will be recognized in a special flag ceremony at halftime.

This is an opportunity for all international students to mingle with American soccer fans. There will be a meet and greet with the team and members of the community following the game to encourage some interaction with the local soccer community.

"Being a former international student I realize how valuable and exciting it can be to meet and make new American friends especially at a time you are so far away from home," said ASU head soccer coach Tafadzwa Ziyenge. "Personally it gave me the privilege of speaking in a language with my new friends that I was trying to learn and it gave me an opportunity to learn a little bit more about the American culture."

It will be a great way for international students to meet with American fans and catch a Red Wolves soccer game.
