Center for International Education

Think Globally– It’s Friday! (TGIF)



In the fall, the Center for International Education will kick off its popular Friday lunch and presentation series “TGIF: Think Globally–It’s Friday!” Our first TGIF will take place on September 4 and will happen nearly every Friday. Most TGIFs will be held in the Woods-Penn Commons from 12:00 noon–1:00 p.m., and an international lunch will be provided. Students who are from other parts of the world or who have traveled abroad will be the presenters for these educational talks.

Below are the TGIFs we hosted in Spring 2016. Please check back on this page to learn more about TGIFs Fall 2016.
