Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina – and more specifically the NC State Fair.
Since the fair is such a major part of North Carolina culture, the GTI took hundreds of international students to the fair during its opening week. Students were given a checklist of things they could see, taste, and do at the fair.
One of the correspondents from the NC State University school newspaper, the Technician, wrote an article about what happens when French international students experience all the fried (and some non-fried) food available at the fair.
The GTI also ran an Instagram photo contest for students who documented their experience at this North Carolina tradition. Not only did the winners have a howling good time at the fair, they also got bottles of North Carolina honey for their efforts.
