Mature Student Dinner – on behalf of the Wong International Centre
TODAY IS YOUR LAST CHANCE TO RSVP!!!!!!!
Wednesday, November 12
Graduate Students are invited to a Mature Student Dinner at the Wong International Centre (main course is being provided to you AT NO COST!)
The Wong International Centre welcomes you to bring appetizers,
refreshments (non-alcoholic), and desserts but it is not required.
They are providing the main course, so it might be awesome if you do attend to bring something!
The goal is promote a mature student community for not only Graduate students, but also older, more ‘mature’ students who may also be international students studying in their undergraduate degree program.
Because this is a dinner being offered to you for FREE – YOU MUST RSVP to ME by Nov. 10 by 12 AM. The staff and students at the Wong International Centre will be shopping and cooking, and need an idea of numbers!
