Students from China and South Korea will be volunteering at the North Dakota Prairie Rose State Games on Saturday and Sunday in Grand Forks.

The 22 students arrived on three separate flights over the weekend. They're taking part in UND's second annual summer work/travel program. Victoria Beard, associate provost at UND, said 15 of the students are from the University of Shanghai Science and Technology, five are from UND's partner university on mainland China and two are from UND's partner school in South Korea.

The students will spend four weeks living with students in campus housing, learning American customs and culture, working full- or part-time jobs and improving English skills.

Beard said eight students from South Korea took part in the initial run of the program last year.
