Our World at Brescia

Student Connector Program – The Student Connector Program is an informal program that connects incoming international students with upper year students. The purpose of the program is for the upper year students to act as ambassadors and welcome the international students and assist with the transition to Brescia and London.

These partnerships enhance our cultural awareness and continue to build our Brescia community.

* International Photo Competition – More info to follow

Getting Together – Students are invited to sign up for monthly trips to ethnocultural restaurants or grocery stores.
