DCCC Davie Campus to Host International Coffee Hour

Feb. 14, 2013 – The Davie Campus of Davidson County Community College will host an International Coffee Hour, an event that celebrates international education. The event will be held at 10 a.m. on Feb. 21 in the lobby area of the Administration Building on the Davie Campus

“The International Coffee Hour serves as a perfect opportunity for students to meet our international students,” says Teresa Kines, dean of the Davie Campus. “Our international students are able to teach our students about themselves and their cultures, providing a significant educational experience.”

The event will include an hour long presentation prior to the coffee hour, which will feature the international students sharing details about life in their home countries. DCCC’s international students represent several countries this year, including Costa Rica, Ghana, Kenya, Pakistan and South Africa.

“This is the fourth year that DCCC has hosted international students through the Community College Initiative Program, and the international students have visited the Davie Campus each year,” says Suzanne LaVenture, director of international education and instructor of Spanish. “It’s an incredible opportunity for Davie students who might never have the chance to travel to another country. This event allows them to see the world through the eyes of another student.”
