Thanks to those of you who attended the IIC Council Meeting. For those who couldn't make it, we've set the potluck date for Saturday, October 22 at 7pm. We will be feasting, catching up progress, and honoring students who will graduate this fall. Hope to see you there!
As a bonus, here are a few photos from the IIC orientation:
Thanks everyone for getting involved. Hope your quarters are going well!

Did you know that this blog has a calendar associated with it? I will be entering quarterly events and highlights from the career center and Korbel. You can view it on this blog or find our Google Calendar under the name duiicblog. Remember to share any interesting events you may come across!

Hello, everyone! Are you ready for finals crunch-time to begin?
Hopefully you all remembered to register for fall classes yesterday, and to apply for graduation if you are graduating in the fall. To those graduating in spring or summer, hang in there – you are almost there!
Just a few odds and ends:
Firstly, thanks to everyone who came out to the quarterly dinner! This time we had a catered Mexican buffet complete with prettily decorated bundt cakes. We also engaged in Margie’s tradition of symbolically letting go of our old anxieties and embracing our hopes for the future. It was great to see some faculty faces and an array of significant others… thanks, everyone! I look forward to our next big dinner in the fall.
Secondly, if you are going to be here for summer, please let me (Anna) know so that I can pair you with incoming students if they visit Denver while I am away. Hopefully you’re enjoying being mentors! Feel free to refer any questions you or your students may have to Margie or me, but remember that Margie is leaving for her sabbatical in June.
Thirdly and lastly, this is a friendly reminder to stay on top of your language requirements – Susan Rivera prefers that you complete your proficiency test at LEAST one quarter before you graduate! This means that if you are graduating next winter you need to play to take your test a lot sooner than you think.
Good luck with classes, everyone!

Happy spring, everyone!
A lot of exciting events will be coming your way this quarter, including the Quarterly IIC Dinner on Friday, May 6 at 7pm! The location has yet to be determined but we are thinking of doing Chinese hot-pot. If you have any preferences or location recommendations, please let me (Anna) know.
Also, we need volunteers to help staff the IIC booth at the Festival of Nations! This FREE DU multicultural event will be held on Saturday, April 16th from noon to 5pm at the Driscoll Student Center. Students who have participated in it in the past say that it is a lot of fun – what’s not to like about constant performances, booths hawking ethnic food, and excited kids? :) This event is a rare opportunity to spread information about the IIC program while interacting face to face with the DU community.
What we do is up to you, but so far we have a couple of ideas for our booth:
2.) A big “peace poster” on which we write the word “peace” in as many languages as possible and have participants guess what language it’s written in.
3.) A slideshow of photos of IIC students on international travels and adventures.
Feel free to share any more ideas you have! And please drop a line if you can volunteer for an hour or so to help.
