  • Flyer for Tea and Talk Event

    Thursday, May 26, 2016 | 5:00 PM-6:00 PM | IEO Reference Library (Classroom Unit Bldg. Rm 105)

    Last one of the quarter! Come together and get to know each other. Snacks are on us! This is the perfect opportunity for cultural exchange, expanding your social network, making new friends, learning about new things you can do on campus and in the community, and having a good time!

    No IEO staff will be present, but there will  be someone from Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) present in case you want to discuss topics such as your transition to the U.S., culture shock, homesickness, academic or social stress, relationship issues, alcohol or drug use concerns or any other mental health concerns.

    This is a no-pressure, non-judgmental, safe place for you to enjoy tea & talk! No sign up required; just come on by!
