Kareem Abdul Jabbar tickets for people who leave their opinion

Dear Wooster Internationals, I have obtained 40 tickets to the talk in a conversational format of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, a leading voice on today’s cultural and political topics and the NBA’s all-time leading scorer.  In the Scot Center’s Timken Gymnasium (1267 Beall Ave.) at The College of Wooster on Tuesday, Sept. 19, at 7:30 p.m.

To get one free ticket (while supplies last):  Go to my website www.go.osu.edu/WoosterInternational and leave a comment about your experiences in America (click on the ‘leave a comment’ link).

  • What is something that most people in your country think about life in America which you believe is true?

and

  • What is something that most people in your country think about life in America that you don’t think is accurate?

The tickets will be available for pickup, with the person’s name on the back, at the Zumba class on Wednesday, September 13 12-1 pm (before, during, and after the 12:10-12:55 class), which this week is at the Gazebo.

 

As summer ends, a thought about beginnings

When I first came to Lomé, Togo (for my junior year abroad of undergraduate studies), I saw so many people walking alongside the roads, I thought “a soccer match or a concert must have just ended.”

Leave a comment stating what surprised you your first day in Wooster.

The first two people who leave such comments will receive 2 tickets each to the talk by basketball legend (and so much more)
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar  
Thursday, September 19, 2017 at 7:30 in the Timken Gymnasium in the Scot Center at the College of Wooster 1267 Beall Ave.

Housing listings in Wooster available from the Wayne Metropolitan Housing Authority

Housing listings:   A graduate researcher asked me for tips on finding housing.  I told him it is currently difficult due to the large number of pipeline construction workers in our area, but those who seek an apartment, room or house can go to the Wayne Metropolitan Housing Authority which is across the street from Buehler’s Grocery Store (downtown) on 345 North Market Street Monday through Friday 8 am to 5 pm an request a free photocopy packet showing addresses, phone numbers and prices.  Please feel free to contact me about these or similar matters.  To see the housing list I picked up and scanned, go to:

OSU OIA Immigration Q&A Session June 7, 2017 12-2 pm Location: 18th Ave Library, Room 340 COLUMBUS

The Postdoctoral Advisory Council and the Postdoctoral Association will be hosting an immigration Q&A session with the staff of OSU’s Office of International Affairs (OIA). We will have Carina Hansen (OIA Director), Amanda Giandinoto (OIA Immigration Officer), and Marc Hedien (OSU Office of Legal Affairs) to answer questions and offer advice regarding OSU policies, visa issues and other immigration related queries.

This session will be geared more towards understanding OSU’s policies in handling immigration issues rather than a general immigration help session

A limited amount of pizza will be served.
