New ISC Chairmen are Looking for New Members

In the beginning of this semester Thomas Arens-Fredin and Ubaid ur Rehman succeeded Majid and Kiran as Chairman and Vice-Chairman of the International Student Committee. The University would like to thank Majid and Kiran for all their hard work and to welcome Thomas and Ubaid as the new chairmen. Your work is very important and appreciated.

ISC is looking for new members
Would you be interested in joining the International Student Committee (ISC) and to introduce new international students to the University and to Borås during the “welcome period” this spring? Then come to the ISC meeting on 13 December to learn more!

What is the International Student Committee and what do they do?
The ISC is a student run group which plans and organises activities for new international students, mainly during the welcome period. The committee has a crucial role in helping new students feel welcome at the University, and in serving as a student buddy for students who are new in Borås and in Sweden. Among other things, the ISC plans activities like tours around the city, trips, welcome dinners, sporting events and ice skating. Basically any kind of activity that they think will be fun and that students will like.

Why join the ISC?
As a member of the committee you will get the chance to connect with people from different cultures, practice your English, and to meet new students. It also gives you valuable experience in planning projects, implementing events, and helps you develop social skills that can build your CV. Members of the ISC get a certificate of their participation, which can be of use for example when applying for a job or for studies abroad.

Who can join the ISC?
All students, international and Swedish students alike, are welcome to join the ISC. The committee is especially looking for students with a sense of responsibility who are interested in arranging activities for other students and who would like to support new students during their introductory time at University of Borås. Note that all participation is voluntary.

Want to know more?
If this sounds interesting, you are welcome to participate in the meeting on 13 December at 4.30 pm – 6.00 pm in J2519 in the library. All students are welcome to participate!
