Humber International Calendar of Events - January

I am Nishant Pandya, a new addition to Humber International's Marketing and Communications team as an Intern, and also a former International Student Ambassador at the Lakeshore campus. I am a business school student and I have had an amazing time in Canada so far, and I give a lot of credit to the Humber International Centre for making my experience valuable.

The last trip I went to was to the CN tower, a landmark of Canada and I found it to be really fun. We many events planned for international students in January! We run these events because we want to help Humber's international students make new friends, get comfortable in Toronto, take a break from school, and explore Canada!

The first event of the year was the International Students' Orientation. POver 400 international students attended at both campuses! We have a number of events planned to help students get acquainted with the life in Canada.
