)-- FUSIA is proud to debut its activities for the 2009 CCIP program. These activities aim to provide students an alternative experience that focuses on holistic development, allowing students to interact with their peers and grasp learning opportunities beyond the scope of their internships.
Taking student feedback from the past years and setting out to create activities even more in tune with what students are looking for, FUSIA has expanded the scope of this year's activities offering students greater avenues for learning and discovery.
"We want to offer students a well-rounded experience. The internships will help students understand working life, and the activities will expose students to life in New York. Last year's positive feedback gave us a clear direction to expand upon. Thanks to our students and many others, we have an even better mix of activities this year," said Elizabeth Kay, President of FUSIA.
These activities are designed to broaden students' horizons and help them understand the other sides of business and the world as a whole. They also allow students a glimpse into university life in America plus a chance to experience New York's rich cultural diversity.
