International Undergraduate Student Welcome Dinner Volunteers Needed
On Tuesday, Aug. 20, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in Manley Field House, Syracuse University will host its second International Welcome Dinner. To ensure the success of this event, the Division of Enrollment and the Student Experience seeks faculty and staff volunteers.
Each volunteer will host a table of matriculated international students and their families to help them feel welcomed into the campus community. Hosts will assist in the flow of conversation at their table. While all staff and faculty may volunteer, those with second language skills are strongly encouraged to participate.
“The students who attended the inaugural dinner were greatly appreciative,” says Amanda Nicholson, assistant provost and dean of student success. “We hope to provide the same welcoming and enriching experience to this year’s incoming students.”
If you are interested and available to volunteer, please contact Michelle Larrabee at firstname.lastname@example.org or 315.443.1200 by Monday, July 8, and specify any second language skills you may have.
