As this ministry continues and concludes it's first full semester, I am becoming more aware of the opportunities and needs of our international student friends! Just know I am working hard to reach and help in every way possible. There are common needs of students and then unique ones after they arrive and get established. Meetings are taking place between international students and myself, American students and myself, as well as meetings with the ISS office.
Opportunities are coming to a close for the semester for a lot of students because they are returning home or going off to other places during the summer, but we will work to offer different opportunities to gather together. Keep checking the website for details.
As the Director of ICM, my desire is to connect with the international students at Purdue University along with connecting them with American friends. This blog is some personal thoughts and stories from our experiences.
