Campus community invited to International Coffee Hour on Fridays
7:40 a.m., Feb. 11, 2014--The University of Delaware Office for International Students and Scholars (OISS) has announced the launch of a weekly social program, International Coffee Hour, this first of which will be held from 4-6 p.m., Friday, Feb. 14, at 44 Kent Way.
International Coffee Hour is a place to make new friends, practice language skills and learn about different cultures while enjoying a free cup of coffee or tea and snacks. All members of the University community are invited to attend.
This new tradition will be held every Friday afternoon during the spring and fall semesters at 44 Kent Way, the new home of UD’s global and graduate communities.
“We are very excited to be launching this new signature event on Friday,” said OISS Director Ravi Ammigan. “Our hope is that it will help build an engaging community not only for our international students and scholars but also for the larger UD community through opportunities for cross-cultural interactions and global connections."
All students and scholars are encouraged to bring friends, classmates and colleagues to share and learn and to start the weekend right with great conversation and coffee.
Look for special updates on the OISS International Coffee Hour webpage about themed coffee hours and performances by bands, soloists, clubs and more.
