  • Scholar Picnic

    Friday, August 19, 2016 | 2:00 PM-4:00 PM | Ocean View Park

    While we are calling this a "Scholar Picnic," you don't need to be a scholar to attend. We welcome anyone connected to our UCSC community!

    Come out and get to know our International Scholars! Family and friends are welcome to join us for a picnic at Ocean View Park near Seabright. We'll try to find a spot near the playground. Please bring a snack to share--we'll provide the soft drinks.  Please sign up here so we can get an idea of how many people are coming. You may want to bring a hat, sunscreen, and a blanket or towel to sit on. Looking forward to hanging out with you all!

  • Found in Conversation

  • event flyer

    Tuesday, August 30, 2016 | 11:00 AM-12:00 PM | Division of Global Engagement Conference Room (Classroom Unit Bldg. Rm. 201)

    What’s thought to be lost in translation is waiting to be found in simple conversation.

    Calling all international scholars! International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) is excited to introduce Found in Conversation, an English conversation circle for visiting scholars and their families. At Found in Conversation gatherings, we will discuss ways to adjust to local culture and language and utilize community resources so that you and your family get the most out of your experience living in Santa Cruz. We will also learn about fun U.S. holidays like Halloween and Thanksgiving and their unique traditions.

    This circle is a great way to practice speaking English and get to know other members of the UCSC scholar community. The topic for our first gathering is getting to know Santa Cruz and its community resources. Sign up today, and we’ll see you on August 30th!
