Dear International Students,
We have a big month of activities coming up! Next Wednesday, March 12, there is a meet and greet in the Standish Room in the Science Library at 7:00pm. This will be a great opportunity to grab some food and drink while international students and previous study abroad students get to know one another. Next, we will visit Howe Caverns on Saturday, March 29th after spring break. Howe caverns will take us over 150 feet underground on a guided tour. Last, don’t forget to get your money order and ticket for the Nets basketball game in NYC on April 4th. Seats are going fast!
On to this week’s events!
