This Fall, international and domestic students at UW had the unique opportunity to participate in FIUTS' intercultural group friendship program: FIUTS Connections. Small groups of students met throughout Fall Quarter to practice intercultural communication, explore Seattle together and make new friends. Each small team of students was lead by two FIUTS student facilitators who planned events and outings for their team. In addition to the team outings, FIUTS hosted activities for all the groups of friends to intermingle, such as a global potluck and making gingerbread houses. FIUTS Connections was a great way for international students to explore Seattle with locals, and for domestic students to meet the international student community and learn about new cultures. Thank you to all of the FIUTS Connections facilitators and participants! You truly helped make this program a success!
The students of the FIUTS Leadership Committee have selected the winner of their quarterly photo contest. Photos were considered on the basis of the quality of the photo and its connection to FIUTS.
Faces of FIUTS is a social media campaign that collects personal stories from individuals who are part of our work. This week, meet Aaron!
