The International Education Centre Centre is once again inviting the Confederation College Community to make this year’s holiday celebrations memorable for our International students. 

We all love Christmas and the chance to celebrate with family and friends. Several of our international students are staying in Thunder Bay over the break and will be alone on Christmas day.  Many are really interested in knowing how we celebrate Christmas and would love to experience a true “Canadian Christmas”.  If you would be interested in sharing your traditions with some international students, and have extra room at your dinner table on Christmas day  do let us know and we will happily facilitate a connection. 

Please contact Judi Nelson Childs, Homestay Facilitator (jnelso13@confederationc.on.ca), or 475-6564 for more information ...

Tickets are still available for Thursday's Spaghetti Dinner in Support of the CICE Program and the United Way.  It promises to be a truly special evening.  The incomparable Brian Campbell is coming back to MC the Event and Chef Tony Sgambelluri and the Sodexo team have an excellent meal planned.  Students from the program are performing and a few of the student's parents will be speaking. There will also be many wonderful prizes available to be won.  Another wonderful feature of this event will be the return of several retirees who have purchased tickets.  Get your tickets from the staff in the CICE program, the Hub, Student Success or SUCCI.  If you are participating (or even if you're not) please consider bringing a non-perishable item that day and help the CICE students build a mountain of food to donate to Stock the Bank.
