Join us today and tomorrow to grab some snacks and drinks at Café I-Place! The space is available all day for students to relax, study, or take a well-deserved break. Good luck on your finals!
TOMORROW 💐🎓 International Place will be hosting a special Coffee & Company to say farewell to our students, visiting scholars, and exchange students who are completing programs in December. We'd like to extend a special invitation to all of our departing students for this event to wish you our best before you leave! As always, everyone is welcome!
This evening, International Place will be hosting a panel of international alumni of The Claremont Colleges to discuss their experiences of being employed in the United States after graduation. Our six panelists include international graduates from four of The Claremont Colleges who are currently working in the Bay Area, the Pacific Northwest, the East Coast, and Mexico City. Their professional fields relate to government, botany, technology, computer science, international relations and more. This event is open to all current international students in the International Place community. Pizza will be provided to attendees!
At I-Place, we're thankful for our wonderful international community! We hope everyone enjoys their time off for the Thanksgiving holidays. Please note that I-Place will be closed beginning Wednesday, November 27, and will re-open on Monday, December 2. Members of the international community can still access the lounge as they typically would after hours. Thanks! 🍂

🗺 IEW STUDENT FEATURE 🗺 Krissah Rolle (@krissah.rolle) is a freshman at @pomonacollege hailing from London, England. She’s anticipating becoming a Media Studies major, and thinking about minoring in Africana Studies. Her favorite class at the moment is Introduction to Media Studies with Professor Friedlander. Our class is mainly discussion-based and it’s allowed me to think about media texts more critically, and consider how they impact our society.”
Attention international seniors! Come learn about post-graduation employment authorization and the H-1B visa at the workshop today, featuring Immigration Attorney Adam Green. #internationaleducationweek
