On Wednesday, Feb 13., the International Peer Assistant (IPA) Program celebrated Valentine’s Day with an international flavor on the Dunwoody Campus.
Hai Trac, IPA member is from Vietnam. Trac explained IPA, “understands difficulties facing new international students.” He added that he joined because he
wanted to help others. International Coffee Hour was
an opportunity for students, local and international, to get to know one another, build a worldwide perspective, win prizes and learn aboutavarietyofbenefitsoffered through GPC.
Deborah Dove, Program Coordinator for International Student Admissions & Advising said, “because of the success last year at the Clarkston campus and the positive feedback on the
surveys, we decided to offer the program again at Clarkson and Dunwoody.” Dove added, “we are very excited about the success!”
Ms. Dove also added, “these events are for the whole campus. It is for everyone to celebrate diversity, form life-long friendships, and learn about other cultures.”
If you also feel a desire to get involved with this great program, IPA is accepting applications until March 1.
