Brazil Gateway News

It’s a family thing!

In 1984, Brazilian siblings Samir Raffoul (BA in engineering), Samira Raffoul (BA in economics and political science) and Lode Raffoul (BS in agriculture) graduated from The Ohio State University.

“We are not triplets. I am the oldest, then Samira, and Samir is the youngest,” said Lode Raffoul. “Having three siblings study at Ohio State together in the '80s, with a family investment, was a memorable academic and multicultural experience. Still today we keep our acquired knowledge. All thanks to the generosity and trust of our late parents, Saliba and Theresa.”

From September 11-20, Jane K. Aparecido, director of the Brazil Gateway, was on campus along with Phoebe You, director of the China Gateway, and Nikhil Tambe, director of the India Gateway.

Ohio State Global Gateway directors visit campus twice a year to connect with faculty, staff and students, discuss future plans and strategies with leadership of different colleges and departments and share what the Gateway team has accomplished in their respective regions abroad.
