Global Connections’ office will be closed over the Winter Break from Sunday, 12/21 through Wednesday, 1/7. We will reopen on Thursday, 1/8. Mallory will be happy to respond to your phone calls and emails on 1/8. Have a restful, safe, and happy holiday season!
Congratulations to all who are graduating in December! We have really enjoyed getting to know you, and we wish you the best in all your future academic or professional endeavors. We would love to hear how you’re doing, so please keep in touch whenever you can by emailing Mallory or by posting on GC’s Facebook Fanpage. GOOD LUCK!.
GC is completely full with transportation requests for the winter break. Currently, we are only receiving requests that are already at the same transportation center and on the same date/relatively close in timeframe (within a couple of hours) as a transportation request we received earlier. Another option to explore is the BG Airport Shuttle, (419) 308-5952.
GC’s annual International Thanksgiving Dinner is this week! Join us for traditional Thanksgiving food (along with vegetarian dishes). There will also be a raffle of various household items & gift cards as well as wonderful International entertainment.
