By Purnell T. Cropper | May 4, 2010

Arcadia University’s Jared I. Greene ’12 found his integrative learning experience studying abroad, helping to start Australia’s first student-produced media platform, called JCNN, at James Cook University. Greene’s photo was published in the Townsville Bulletin with the launch of the site, which included his article “Studying Down Under.”

Greene, a Print Communications major, wrote the article about experiencing James Cook University, Townsville campus, through the eyes of international students. “This semester James Cook University has enjoyed a record intake of international students, with almost 700 students commencing in Townsville and Cairns—a growth of 12 percent on full degree numbers from 2009.”

“According to Dr. Stephen Weller, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (University Services) JCU Cairns campus, our international students’ satisfaction with the services they received from James Cook International last year ranked number 1 in Australia of the 12 universities taking part in the International Student Barometer,” Greene reports.
