1. Come to the spooktacular mid-semester CCCC party!

Are you burnt out from midterms, doing loads of course work and sweating over mid-semester projects? Do you want an opportunity to chill out with the Cross-Cultural Conversation Connection program? Are you free on Friday, Oct. 22, from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m.? Great, you’re qualified!

You do not need to be a current member to join us for this event. Instead, take this as an opportunity drop in for few minutes, munch on some snacks, play a game or two, and watch Halloween-related clips!

You are highly encouraged to dress up in a costume of your choice but can opt to wear orange and black if you prefer.

The event will take place in the Centennial Hall Meeting Room where we’ll be waiting with snacks, word games, and conversation! We hope to see you there!

Questions? Contact Krys Ingman at cccc@bgsu.edu.
