On January 20th, some of our exchange students got together for coffee and conversation, as we do every month. New winter arrivals mingled with students in their second term and those who had already been here for several years. We discussed differences between the education system in their home countries and what they are experiencing here in the United States, extracurricular activities, as well as homework and how everyone is adjusting to their new classes.
Countries represented at this coffee hour: Mexico, Finland, France, Greece, Japan, Ecuador, Czech Republic, Germany, and Norway!
The only disappointment was that the cafe had run out of cookies, so we were unfortunately snack-less. Next time we won’t make that mistake! Hope to see you all at the next one.
