Out of the Woods @ ISPO

WHEN: Thursday, October 17th from 4:30-6:30 PM

WHERE: ISPO's Office at Student Center B (1st Floor Entrance on Mandeville Lane and Gilman Drive)

RSVP FOR THIS EVENT! 

A common American idiom, 'Out of the Woods' can mean no longer in an uncertain or difficult situation,  danger, or trouble. 

We know it can be overwhelming these first few weeks as you transition to campus life. ISPO invites you for an afternoon into ISPO's woods to get 'Out of the Woods'! After getting settled in, you may still have some questions about meeting new friends, adjusting to U.S. and campus life, understanding your immigration status, or finding a nearby restaurant that reminds you of home - we're ready to listen and get you out of the woods! In addition to food, you'll have ISPO's staff of advisors, campus support resources, and student organizations in our woods ready to answer any of your questions!
