DROP YOUR PHONE’S AND INTERACT!

Students also had the opportunity to team up and learn about different countries! With our International Festival vast approaching, we are creating more posters of countries for students, faculty, and families to view and learn more about during the event. Each student briefly looked at a poster and presented the information they learned to fellow members! Afterwards, the groups were assigned to pick a country and create an illustrative poster for our upcoming festival. Our INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL will be held on Friday, November 18th in the Building E Atrium and auditorium, from 2pm – 6pm. You don’t want to miss it!

Washington, D.C. Trip

The rain did not stop us from enjoying our experience in D.C. From the White House tour to the State Capitol tour, the excitement continued to build as we explored the city! A special thanks goes out to the advisors that arranged both of these tours and the trip itself!

IFC General Meeting 2-18-2016

We had a great turn out for our 2nd General Meeting of the semester! Special thanks goes out to each member, advisor, and officer for making the meeting a success. We discussed a range of topics from our upcoming Krispy Kreme Fundraiser, our trip to Washington D.C., to the Interfaith Food Shuttle Volunteer Opportunity. Those who did not get a chance to attend the meeting missed an informative presentation by our V.P., Asiegbu Ujah, as he presented a piece on NIGERIA. Ask us about it!
