"Experience is the teacher of all things." -Julius Caesar
The ELI offers more than just English classes. The Office of International Programs offers a wide range of social, cultural, and recreational activities to help international students connect with campus and explore the United States. On-campus activities include visits to UNCP’s recreation center, international festivals, ping-pong tournaments, and formal and informal social gatherings. Off-campus, we tour sites and cities in North Carolina and the surrounding states, including trips to the beach, mountains and amusement parks with some of the tallest, fastest, and longest roller coasters in the southeast.
