The International Student Program (ISP) hosted a welcome bonfire for all students at Ocean Beach in San Francisco on August 30, 2019. The event was attended by the Dean of Global Learning Programs and Services, Russell Waldon, ISP staff, and both domestic and international students.
As students gathered around the firepit, Wissem Bennani, the Program Manager for ISP, kicked off the event by lighting the bonfire. Students were then introduced to the ultimate bonfire snack, s’mores! It proved to be a hit as students kept coming back for more of the sweet treat. Students bonded over playing soccer, taking photos, and music. Despite the initial grey skies, it became the perfect weather for a bonfire. Soon, the sun began to set, and students gathered one last time to watch it go down, taking numerous photos of the beautiful sunset.
The next ISP event will be our signature Fall event, International Education Week, from November 18-21, 2019. Our ever-popular International Food Festival will be held during that week as well! Hope to see you there!
