    International and U.S. students showed their artistic flair in carving creative jack-o’-lanterns on October 31, 2018, at the HMB Atrium. This event, held in partnership with the English Language Institute (ELI), was part of Global Connection Gatherings' ongoing events sponsored by the International Student and Scholar Services unit of the Office of Research Support and International Affairs, to ease new international students’ transition to life in the United States and on campus.

    Students were encouraged to wear Halloween costumes, and Tissa Peiris, ’98 & G-’14, ELI cross cultural communications instructor, explained American Halloween traditions. Special thanks goes to the Florida Avenue NE Trader Joe’s for donating pumpkins.
