One of the International Centre’s favourite events each semester is the Meet & Greet party for new international students. This event takes place during the first month of each new semester. This September was no exception. On Thursday, September 25, 2014 the Lakeshore International Centre invited new international students, as well as returning students, to join our fun event.

Shortly after 3:30pm, the International Centre was filling with excited students. The smell of freshly made popcorn and cotton candy filled the air and a table of colourful, tasty treats were available for hungry students to enjoy while they mingled.  This was a great opportunity for students to meet not only each other, but also the Lakeshore staff, in addition to asking any questions they might still have.

Yummy Treats

Several tables of helpful information were available for students. The Athletics Centre provided information regarding their services and team sports. Information about all the upcoming events the International Centre is hosting, our Connect program, and our Passport to Success program were all available.

After a brief Hello from Kristina Mathias, the Lakeshore International Student Advisor, the fun was ready to begin!

Students participated in a dress up “Relay Race”…

The afternoon party came to a close at 5:00pm.  Students took the opportunity to take a #humberselfie with our @HumberGlobal frame before leaving.

We hope that you come out and celebrate our next Meet and Greet Party in January!
