GC’s Spring World Food & Fun Night!
Saturday, February 21, 2015
6:00 – 9:00 pm
@ Dayspring Church (17360 N Dixie Highway)
Join us for an evening of fun and food from a variety of cultures, fun connections between Internationals & Americans, and fun entertainment!
Bring a dish of food (already prepared and enough for 5-6 people) from your culture for the potluck.
Email us at email@example.com for directions. For a ride, meet in front of ISS, south end of University Hall in Faculty Parking Lot A–look for the Dayspring van. Rides will be available from 5:45–6:30 pm and after the event.
This is a child friendly event. Bring your family!
If interested, you will have the opportunity to give a cash or check donation to Global Connections at this event.
Helping out with transportation requests for current Internationals residing in BG is another type of service that Global Connections offers. Unfortunately, we cannot help everyone–though we would like to. We can only take a certain number of requests based on the number of Volunteers we have available to help. We REQUIRE a two week’s notice for all requests and we can only offer rides to Detroit and Toledo transportation centers. A donation of $40 to Detroit and $20 to Toledo is necessary. Get your requests for Spring Break in soon by contacting Mallory at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to weather, GC’s Community English Class will be starting on Wednesday, 1/28 from 9:30 — 11:30 am. Join us for this FREE service! All levels of English are welcome! Email Mallory for more information.
Do you take a lot of pictures or collect ticket stubs, brochures, and flyers? Would you like to display them in a decorative book to remember all of your experiences? Join Mallory and other interested Internationals in a new Scrapbook Group starting this semester. We will meet monthly at Mallory’s home. You will need to buy your own scrapbook and print your own pictures; all other materials will be provided. If interested, contact Mallory by 1/22.
Join us for our annual bowling & pizza night to welcome everyone back from Winter Break and to welcome new International students just starting at BGSU.
When: Friday, January 16, 2015
Time: 7:00-9:00 pm
Location: Al-Mar Lanes (1010 N. Main Street)
Cost: $8.00 cash only (includes shoes, multiple games of bowling, pizza & drinks)
To join us, please reserve your spot with Mallory at email@example.com by January 15.
If you have signed up with Mallory and need a ride, meet in front of International Student Services, south end of University Hall in Faculty Parking Lot A (the walkway between Hanna & University Halls). Rides will be available from 6:30 – 6:45 pm and then after the event.
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.
