Ribbon Cutting for International Village
April 17 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pmFree
The new International Village at Southeast Missouri State University will hold a ribbon cutting and open house from 3:30-5 p.m. April 17. The International Village is the new location for the University’s Office of International Education and Services (IES) and the Intensive English Program (IEP), and will provide a venue dedicated to serving international students and enhancing the University’s diverse and globally-oriented campus.
The public is invited, and Southeast faculty, staff and students are welcome.
The newly refurbished facilities include an administrative building with new office space for IES and IEP staff, and a gym upgraded to be used for social, recreational and learning activities. Adjacent to the gym is a commercial and residential kitchen to be used as a catering prep area for events in the gym or for student social activities. Additionally, renovations for a 20-station computer lab in the administrative building, and four classrooms and two small lounges in the cottages will help meet the academic needs of IEP students.
The International Village is a unique setting and one offered by only a handful of universities in the nation. It is spaces such as this that give students an opportunity to learn from one another and feel at home on a college campus. The International Village will serve as a gathering space and learning environment for all students for many years to come.
