IEEC Goes to: Dinner and a Movie Night
Sonoma State University’s IEEC Club invites you to have a dinner and movie night on Friday, March 10th at 6:00pm!
Our ambassador Chika, who is from Japan, is going to treat you to Japanese curry & rice and some Japanese snacks!
Also we’re going to watch a movie called “Our Little Sister”, which depicts an ordinary Japanese life and the relationship among 4 sisters. The highlight of the movie is that the story is set in a very popular and historical place called Kamakura. You’ll definitely like it!
We will be meeting at the flagpoles on campus at 6:00 pm and carpool over to our ambassador Amira’s house. Please come to the Center for International Education office (International Hall 107) to sign up for the event. The deadline to sign up will be on Thursday the 9th of March by 4:30pm.
