Feb. 17: International Connection Series: Africa and the Islands

The International Student Organization (ISO) and International Student Services hosted the first of the three-part International Connection Series, during which the groups explore different regions of the world through the university’s international student panels.

The event took place on Friday, Feb. 17, at the Founders Hall reception area. Students from Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Nigeria shared experiences from their homelands and what it has been like living in America for them and their families. They also answered questions from audience members.

Future series will explore Asia, Europe and Latin America. Both events will be held in late March. Each installation of the series will begin with a meet and greet. Food will be provided.

The Connection Series is a chance to meet international students and see the detailed perspective of their home countries. Audience members are encouraged to participate and question the panelists .

For students interested in receiving email updates from the ISO, go to Orgsync and join their group. For further information, contact Tina Martinez at: xl2071at@metrostate.edu.
