International Reception




Join us for our 21st annual INTERNATIONAL RECEPTION 

Friday, February 9th 2018

Due to Hurricane Irma, the International Reception was postponed


Cohen Center Ballroom

Doors open at 5pm, program begins at 5:30PM


It is a spectacular evening of mingling with people from around the world, witnessing beautiful performances, enjoying delicious international foods, and listening to inspirational talks...


This exciting event is our showcase of our international education initiatives, an official welcome to our international students and scholars, and an opportunity for our university and community members to get acquainted while sampling international appetizers. FGCU has hosted international students, scholars and faculty from more than 100 countries.  We invite you to learn about recent study abroad trips and inspiring international exchanges, as well as dynamic service projects and academic programs.


Prize drawing, international food sampling and a surprise guest!


Cultural attire is encouraged


Accommodations for persons with disabilities may be requested
