     3. International Souses Tea Party – Thurs., Oct. 14th at 5:00 pm - International Student & Scholar Services would like to take this opportunity to invite you to the “International Spouses Tea Party”. We know how difficult it can be for the spouses of international student to get used to life in the United States. It’s a new place, new food, new customs, new language and very little support. The spouses often stay home while the students go off to school. So, ISSS would like to provide the international spouses in the UAlbany community to come out, enjoy some free food and tea and maybe meet new people. Of course the students are invited too!
