I-Society and International Office to Launch “World Piece”
Sept. 26, 2007
BLOOMINGTON, Ill. – In a joint effort, the Illinois Wesleyan University International
Society Student Organization (I-Society), and the International Office will launch
“World Piece,” a series of hour-long student-led discussions focusing on current global
The first discussion, on Monday, Oct. 1 at 7 p.m., will be led by junior international
studies major Anna File, who studied in China last year. It will take place at the
International House (Kemp Hall, 1207 N. Main St., Bloomington). IWU students, faculty
and staff, as well as members of the community are invited to attend.
I-Society is a student organization that promotes cultural awareness on the IWU campus,
brings together students of various ethnicities, and encourages IWU students to study
abroad. I-Society also sponsors the I-Carnivale, an annual festival that celebrates
the multiple cultures on campus.
President of the organization, Hoang Nguyen said, “With an increase in international
students [at IWU], the time is right to expand the scope of I-Society. In recent
years, we have focused our energy on the I-Carnivale in the spring, but we’re taking
time this year to do other activities and ‘World Piece’ is one of them.”
International Student Advisor Reenie Bradley said they’re hoping to sponsor ‘World
Piece’ on the first Monday of each month while IWU is in session.
