FREE Fri Night Dinner, Sept 10!

Hello everyone!  Hope you had a great Labor Day!  We want to invite you all to attend International Friend’s first Friday Night Dinner of the semester, this Friday night, Sept 10!

This is a FREE DINNER for all UNC international students, scholars, post-docs, and their families. We will meet at 6pm in the Atrium in the School of Public Health (Michael Hooker Research Building) across the street from the Health Science Library on South Columbia.  (See map here). We will provide a free dinner, enjoy conversation and a chance to meet new people, and afterwards we will have a short seminar on “Relating to American Culture.” Two seasoned international students and scholars will share about their experience coming to America for the first time years ago and how they learned to make friends with Americans, develop a community here away from home, adjust to culture shock, and more.  Also, Dr. Tyndall, a professor in the School of Dentistry, will share about how to succeed in your studies in America, how to relate with professors, and other information.  There will also be a question and answer session afterwards.  To help us to address the issues you are interested in, you can submit a question you would like the panel to answer in advance.  Questions can be anything about relating to Americans, adjusting to the culture/life here, anything about the UNC academic setting–whatever you want!  Submit your question using the survey link below.  Thanks!
