International Friends has lots of exciting welcome activities happening, we can’t wait to see you there! And don’t forget to find us at Fallfest (Sunday, Aug 22). Check the website often for updates, or better yet, email UNCinternationalfriends@gmail.com and ask to be added to the listserv!
Join us for free ice cream and a meet-and-greet with other international students and Americans. A great way to hear about other events International Friends has to offer and start the school year off with some fun! The Battle House is located near the intersection of Country Club Rd and Battle Ln, near the Forest Theatre and the Kenan Quad dormitories. It is a big white house with big front yard. See map here.
Join us for a day at one of North Carolina’s beautiful beaches. We will provide transportation and meet at 8am in front of Carmichael Dormitory, across from Kenan Stadium, and we will return around 9:00 pm. The cost for the trip is $30 to cover the cost of rental vans and gas. Pack a lunch to bring to the beach (and lots of water!), and bring money to get dinner on the way home ($5-$10). And don’t forget a beach towl, swimsuit, and change of clothes. Space in the vans is limited, so register early. Contact us for more information or to sign up at UNCinternationalfriends@gmail.com. Because of limited space, this event is open only to current UNC students/scholars (and their spouses), but no young children. Sorry! This trip is full and now has a waitlist.
Team up with other international and American students in a race you will always remember. Discover UNC’s campus while competing for fun prizes in this photo scavenger hunt. This is a great way to make new friends and get to know the local area! Email UNCinternationalfriends@gmail.com to sign up. Meet at the Battle House (See map here) at 5pm sharp–don’t be late or you’ll miss the race!
