Why you have to join Cross-Cultural Discussion Group

Hey guys! Today I'm going to introduce Cross-Cultural Discussion Group, which I was a part of last semester. So basically it is a weekly discussion where you can share cross-cultural expriences and talk about various topics with other international students at the University of Minnesota. In my discussion group last semester, we talked about our stereotypes of America, traditional holidays of different countries, traveling experiences, gender issues, culture shock, American education system (compared to our home country's) and so on! It was a great opportunity for me to meet new people, learn about different cultures and countries, and broaden my perspectives as well. For more information, visit ISSS website (http://www.isss.umn.edu/programs/disgroup/). The deadline for this semester has extended to February 12 

On the last day of our discussion, we went out for lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings. Here's a picture of my discussion group below.
