This week, Turkish Flagship students visited Indiana University’s Global Living-Learning Center (GLLC) in Read Residence Hall to share their Flagship experience. The night began with a presentation about the importance of Turkish and Turkey in an increasingly interconnected world. The students spoke about the unique opportunities Turkish Flagship offers students who are passionate about become professionally proficient and culturally competent in Turkish, a language critical to United States security. After the presentation, GLLC students and Turkish Flagship students ate pistachio cookies and rose-flavored Turkish Delight while making bracelets. The Nazar beads, featuring the Evil Eye, were a big hit! While they worked on the bracelets, students shared experiences they had had abroad in Azerbaijan and encouraged interested students to consider joining the program.
