Hey penguins, are you all still planning to participate on some activities offered by our many clubs at Clark College? As Vice-President of the International Club, it is my pleasure to announce our last event for the 2015-2016 academic year: The Food Competition. The event is created with the purpose of offering the opportunity for students, faculty, and staff to try a diverse cuisine with foods made by students from different cultures around the world. So, save the date guys! It will be this Friday, May 27th, from 12:15 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., but the doors will open at 12:00 p.m. Here is some important information for those who will be competing: each one will be receiving a $5 Clark College Bookstore gift card just for participating, and the first three winners will earn special prizes varying between $10 and $30 gift cards also from the Bookstore. What a great chance to experience different and delicious foods, right?!?! Visit our Facebook page here for more information on the Food Competition.
Now you may be thinking: I have no idea what this club is!!! The International Club is an initiative of Clark College international students, sponsored by International Programs staff, to create an amazing environment among foreign and american students. Following that, international students can practice the English language and get more engaged in our community, which, consequently, will help them to overcome some obstacles they may face. For our american friends, it is a great opportunity to explore more cultures from around the world and, perhaps, start to learn a new language. Clearly, it is made for everyone, and the main point is surely HAVING FUN! We promote enjoyable events and volunteer activities throughout the quarter! The club has been off for awhile, but we brought it up during this year, and hopefully we will keep it up for this upcoming year with more activities.
So, what are you waiting for? Let’s enjoy the last event of this year and help the club to make the 2016-2017 academic year another successful year! There is no doubt it benefited me, as an international student (I wish I could have participated my first year ), and it also benefits our entire penguin nation! As I use to say to everyone, the more engaged students are in our community, the more benefits they will receive!
