This week we would love for you to join us for our first ISSA 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
3) Students who cannot make normal meeting hours will have a chance to actively participate in the club.
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
Next week we are going to get back to the grind for a regularly scheduled general meeting in SSPA-107 at 4 PM for “International Students in Long Beach.” Our discussion will be based on international students who study abroad in America, specifically those at our own school. We invite you to come for an open forum to meet students and ask questions about their experience going to college in a country other than their own. From casual discussion, we hope to learn and reflect on how our countries shape our perspectives of people and places, and how that changes or doesn’t when we travel and study abroad.
When: Tomorrow, Wednesday, September 28
Where: Ashoka the Great, 18614 Pioneer Blvd, Artesia 90701
Cost: $15 (includes appetizers, main dishes, desserts, and drink)
We would also like to take this time to announce our main event for this semester! CSULB’s ISSA is proud to present Lingua Franca at the University Art Museum on Thursday, November 10th from 7 to 10pm. The UAM’s Peace Press Exhibit will be the backdrop of our event, a fundraiser to raise money towards the ISSA Study Abroad Scholarship. The night will feature a silent art auction, multi-lingual DJs and musicians, and complimentary food. We are currently looking for artists, photographers, sculptors, and more willing to show and donate their work for our silent auction. Please contact us if you would like to somehow be involved in this event, whether or not you are an artist! Help us promote international education to our campus, Long Beach, and the greater LA and OC community!
