Turkish Flagship students attended the First Thursday celebration to share information about the Turkish Flagship, as well as aspects of Turkish Culture, such as Iznik Tiles. Numerous people stopped by to examine the pottery and told students that they had been to Turkey and had pottery like that in their home. Attendees were excited to learn Turkish words and phrases, as well as share the phrases that they had learned during their time in Turkey. Flagship Students who had studied abroad in Azerbaijan also met a number of exchange students from Baku who were in the U.S. for a few weeks while studying English. After exchanging greetings in Azeri, they talked about their experiences abroad.
