2013-09-01 Welcome Picnic
I'm thankful that God gave us wonderful weather and a beautiful place for the Welcome Picnic. Prof Coppock gave us an engaging speech about Economics, flowers, and belief in God. Being an Economics professor, he was willing to share about his firm faith in a humorous and economics-related way, which enlightened for us the door to Christianity. Later, we played a game in order to allow everyone to engage in the event. Each one told his new friends fun facts about himself, and got to know others much better. We enjoyed an amazing musical performance by Pure and Alex. Moreover, we enjoyed delicious food provided by warm-hearted people from a local church, had a wonderful time talking with new friends, and shared our life experiences with others. Also, students played Frisbee and tug-of-war, which gave the chance to establish closer relationships among them. This Welcome Picnic gave international students the opportunity to communicate with local people and have a better understanding of American culture. Check out the pictures:
