2016 International Student Welcome Picnic
On Sunday, September 11th, Rochester Global Connections hosted its International Student Welcome Picnic at the Sandpiper Lodge on Ontario Beach Park. Over 200 students attended from colleges and universities such as the University of Rochester, Rochester Institute of Technology, and Monroe Community College. These students represented over 20 countries including Afghanistan, Brazil, China, Ghana, India, Myanmar, Russia, and Sweden. The students enjoyed a picnic style dinner and made many connections though a scavenger hunt game. A number of potential friendship volunteers were introduced to our organization and to the students involved.
