Attend the Global Series Interest Session

Spring semester is here and Holcombe Hall is excited to bring you another Global Series season where students present on their home country or about their studies abroad.

Are you an international student who likes talking about your country and your culture? Are you a domestic student with study abroad experience who wants to share your tales of life in a different country?

If your answer is yes to either of the questions, we are inviting you to attend the Global Series Interest Session at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 16 and Friday, Jan. 17 in the Holcombe Hall living room.

Presenting at a Global Series session connects you with the campus international community and opens doorways to other cultures and an international sensibility.

See you all there!
