In other news, this week in lieu of our traditional general meeting setting, we will be going to the CLASC Student & Faculty Mixer – “A Trip Around the World” at the Soroptimist House on campus. It will be an evening of great food and great company, giving all students and faculty from within our college a chance to meet each other and expand our networks. Go straight to the Soroptimist House, and we will see you then!
What: Social for College of Liberal Arts students & faculty
When: this Wednesday, September 21
Where: Soroptimist House (on Beach Drive by Nursing Dept.)
Next Wednesday, ISSA will have our first Social Night. We are incorporating Social Nights into our calendar this semester so that 1) students can experience an aspect of a different culture, 2) we can give members the opportunity to meet outside of the regular classroom setting, and 3) students who cannot make normal meeting hours will have a chance to actively participate in the club. Our first social night will be a culinary experience, and we hope you can all attend! We are organizing carpools and will be meeting at SSPA-107 at 5pm to leave from campus.
What: Dinner at a local Indian restaurant for ISSA members and non-members
When: next Wednesday, September 28
Where: Ashoka the Great, 18614 Pioneer Blvd, Artesia 90701
Cost: between $10 & $15 (final price TBA)
We hope you can join us for these next two great opportunities to better acquaint yourself with your fellow internationally-minded 49ers! After these two awesome events, ISSA will get back to the grind with interesting open forums discussing international education on our very own campus!
