“As an international student and employee, I have a special connection to this project as it is a part of my identity on campus. I have struggled with some of the cultural adjustments a lot of international students face and I have worked very hard to make that transition smoother for my peers.”
Busayo loves to cook and follow her own impromptu recipes.
Busayo Apampa is a senior at Boise State and will graduate in May with a degree in Business Economics. Originally from Lagos, Nigeria, Busayo came to Boise State in 2013 as an international student. Throughout her years at Boise State, she has made an incredible impact on our campus community. Her involvement in International Student Services, New Student Program, Boise State Housing, Women of the Workplace, Afro Black Student Alliance, International Students Association, The Honors College, and The College of Business and Economics demonstrates her passion for community, advocacy, and education. Her vision is to start conversations specifically regarding international student services. On the second floor of the Student Union Building, there used to be a space for international students to gather with their friends and share their experiences in the United States. The space offered community while serving as a safe place to cultivate friendships and seek guidance. That space no longer exists, as the office has been moved and downsized. Busayo aims to share the message of how decisions like these affect the international student community.
