Campus Conversation Partners

I recently volunteered for a new program on campus called Campus Conversation Partners, which pairs a student or faculty volunteer with an international student who speaks English as a second language. I met my partner yesterday, who is a PhD candidate in Chemistry and is from China. We will meet one hour a week, to help him improve his conversational English. I am always impressed with International students, because I don’t think I would have the courage to move to a different country to study. I would probably adjust to a different culture, but I too would need a lot of help with the language. I’m looking forward to getting out of my own building, and learning more about the rest of the campus.
