Spring Break 2013
Students are invited to attend an International Student Association panel, "Campus Perceptions and Challenges." What do international students think about their lives at UNI? The panel will discuss difficulties and challenges regarding misconceptions about international students from different cultures, what might have inhibited friendships and learning between International students and student from the U.S.
The International Student Association (ISA) invites all faculty, staff and students to join a panel of international students in discussing the challenges international students experience while in the United States as well as address stereotypes and assumptions that have been associated with them. There will be two sessions; each is designed for different audiences.
The first session is open to all faculty and staff and will be held in the Old Central Ballroom A, Maucker Union, at 1 p.m. The second session is open to all students and will be held in the Center for Multicultural Education at 7:30 p.m.
The purpose of this event is to create awareness about the disparity in world food distribution and the millions of people who remain malnourished. Participants will be randomly divided into groups representing different income levels and given meals based on what is typical of that income group.
