A new online international magazine featured one of PSU’s outstanding recent graduates in its debut edition.
The magazine, International Student Voice, launched in the late fall and includes stories from all over the world about international travel and study. Cathy Lee Arcuino, PSU’s associate director of International Programs and Services, said when announcements for the magazine came across her radar, she immediately nominated Ivan Hunnicutt to be featured in the magazine’s “Spotlight” section. Hunnicutt’s profile can be viewed at www.isvmag.com by clicking on the “ISV Spotlight Award” tab.
Arcuino, who worked with Hunnicutt for years and long admired his work ethic and readiness to find solutions to issues faced by international students. “He is proof that international students can adjust to a new culture and have incredible experiences while they’re here.”
Originally from Sao Paulo, Brazil, Hunnicutt certainly made the most of his time at PSU. After being selected to study at a Taiwan business camp sponsored by the Kelce College of Business in 2010, he spent last summer working in a prestigious and competitive internship with Wal-Mart at the company’s Bentonville, Ark., headquarters. He accrued a long list of involvement with various student organizations and Greek life before graduating in December with a degree in computer information systems.
“PSU was a great place to be, and I want to make sure other students know that,” Hunnicutt said. “Hopefully this will get more international students to study abroad and get out of their comfort zone, because learning new things is the whole point.”
