ISP at LWC: Utilizing our house to the fullest

By Sabine Eastham

A year and a half ago, a dream came true - the International Student Programs at the Lindsey Wilson College moved into a house on campus at 304 Lindsey Wilson Street. We had high hopes for the potential use of our new house, and it has materialized.

Our students have been utilizing the house for casual gatherings, ESL classes, celebrations and educational showcases, finding a quiet place to study, a place where they can relax, finding homemade treats, gatherings around the fire pit outside, celebrating the holidays and often utilizing the kitchen to cook their own food and to share a meal together. Students from different countries took turns to cook for students from other countries and taste each other's food. Many U.S. students meet our visitors from other countries and cultures at the "ISP HOUSE".

Thanksgiving is approaching - a time to give thanks and appreciate things. We are truly blessed and thankful for being able to offer this and more to our international students as they bring so much to this campus and community.
