ISOSU November Events
Hey OSU Beavs!
We hope you’re staying warm as the temperature grows frigid.
Here in the IRC, we’re keeping busy with a few upcoming events the month of November, including International Education Week!
Because there is so much going on, here is a reminder of what’s going on at ISOSU.
Danger of a Single Perspective
For Thursday’s Danger of a Single Perspective, we’re taking a look, and discussing the educational systems around the world!
Members of the ISOSU exec team have already begun discussing the differences between each country. For example. in Malaysia, a 75% is considered an A! That’s the same in Jamaica, where my dad is from.
According to Dulguun, our International Coordinator, in her home-country, Mongolia, an A is the same as in the United States.
International Education Week Coffee Hour
International Education Week 2014 starts Monday, Nov. 17. In honor of celebrating international education, ISOSU is teaming up with the Division of International Programs to host the biggest Coffee Hour of the term! Literally. We anticipate 100 attendees to come. This means more fun, more opportunities to network, and more food. Free food.
So drop by the International Resource Center from 4:30-6pm to celebrate with us! RSVP on our event page.
Meet ‘N’ Mingle
ISOSU’s biggest event of the term is just around the corner: Meet ‘N’ Mingle! International students, this is the event for you! If you’re interested in networking, gathering resources and taking the steps to become a leader at OSU, join us in the MU Horizon Room for Meet ‘N’ Mingle!
More event details to come on our social media!
Intersection of Identity
This project is one that will benefit many international students on campus. For international students within the LGBTQ community, it’s important to know that resources are available. And if you ever feel shy of entering the Pride Center, representatives want you to know that there is a back door you can use. ISOSU wants to help you guys get connected. Join us for Intersection of Identity to learn more!
We’re moving pretty quickly this month, but there’s plenty of time to catch up! Start by joining us for Danger of a Single Perspective tomorrow in the IRC!
And don’t forget International Education Week, Nov 17-21. Check out the official IEW calendar to participate in the fun!
~Stay warm, Beavers!
