Meet at the IEI
Join us for the most popular local festival of the year—celebrating sweet corn! You can try some corn on the cob with butter, the American way to eat corn. There will be live music, arts and crafts from local artists to purchase, and other delicious food. We will take a bust to downtown Urbana to see all the festivities.
Meet at the IEI at 4:45pm. The dinner is at the ARC in MP6.
A campus group called International Student Connections is inviting all international students on campus for a free, home-cooked dinner, a chance to meet new people, and to learn about their club. We will meet at the IEI and take a bus to the ARC.
