LWC Welcomes 11 new ISP students to America!

By Sabine Eastham
Lindsey Wilson College Director of International Student Programs

On Friday, January 11, 2019, two of 11 new international students were picked up at the Louisville, KY airport and immediately got to taste our fine cuisine at the "Cardinal Hall of Fame Cafe" on 2745 Crittenden Drive in Louisville, KY.

Our guests tried everything from "Lettuce Wraps, to Jambalaya Pasta, South Coast Fish Tacos to Bourbon Chicken". We continued the experience with a much anticipated trip to Wal-Mart.

The next day, we left campus bright and early to continue our exploration of Kentucky with a tour of the Yellowstone Distillery in Lebanon, KY.

The tour was great... even without a taste-testing! And to follow the motto "Eat. Travel. Repeat," we stopped at Creekside Restaurant in Campbellsville, KY, where students tasted horseradish for the first time, enjoyed fried pickles and tried an array of other delicious dishes.

Students will get to rest a bit and will face a few hours of testing, advising and orientation on Monday, before the start of the spring semester at the Lindsey Wilson College. We are happy to be welcoming two new host parents, Ms. Anna Babb and Ms. Robin Brown, who will help our students get adjusted to life in the U.S. and South Central Kentucky!

The International Student Programs is excited to be able to continue to offer monthly *TED (Transcontinental Educational Discussions) talks in the spring semester, where our public is always encouraged and invited to attend.

We will also visit the Adair County Middle School for a "Day of Teaching Cultural Awareness and Diversity" and of course we could not submit this article without mentioning our "International Marketplace", one of the most anticipated events in Columbia, where students will prepare food from their countries and have and open to the public, tentatively scheduled for April 26, from NoonCT to 1pmCT.
