Friday Dinner this week

This Friday is our next free Friday International Dinner for the semester hosted by UNC International Friends, Friday Feb 15th at University Presbyterian Church.  Enter through the student center doors at 110 Henderson Street (1/2 block off Franklin Street) (Google Maps link).

Dinner will be served at 6pm.  We will be having a home cooked meal of Chili and cornbread (including a vegetarian option) and we will end by 8pm so you can catch the bus home – or there are people who can give you a ride.

After dinner we will be playing ‘Speed Friending” which has been really popular in the past. We talk about love on Valentine’s Day (February 14), but what is it really and what is it not? Next we will hear from John Sorrell (IF staff) talk about love and then participate in some interesting table discussions about love from different perspectives!

We look forward to seeing you Friday before 6pm!

Can you name your strengths as a leader? Can you articulate what makes you stand out as a good friend? Whatever these qualities may be, they likely have to do with emotional intelligence (EQ)! We invite you to explore these qualities at our Two-day Interactive EQ Workshop where you can develop strengths and identify & build up the areas you want to grow.
