The Office of International Programs and Services will be hosting an International Conversation Hour again this Friday.

The event is every Friday in the Russell Union Ballroom from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

International Students and American students are welcome to share their culture, meet new people from around the world, and get more involved with the Office of International Programs and Services. Lunch will be provided.

“The goal is for students to learn about other cultures and the world and break down cultural barriers and hopefully study abroad and become a better global citizen,” Angie Threatte, coordinator for international programming and events, said in an email.

Visiting international students, faculty and staff also attend the luncheon. Interactive games are played with prizes awarded.

There are currently a little over 400 international students from over 100 different countries attending GS.
