Hey Seawolves!

This week in the Center for International Education…

FEATURED

Make sure to check out on SSU International Education Exchange Council (IEEC) Facebook page!

IEEC went to: Hike Fairfield Observatory Event

This event was a great way to escape SSU campus and get some fresh air this past Saturday! Located near Gravity Hill this large expanse of land is practically untouched with a wide abundance of wild flowers, fallen trees, and small woodland creatures. This event was about three hours long but the reward for climbing all the way to the top gave us a great view of Sonoma County!

Cancelled IEEC Event:  Two Day Retreat in Arnold, California

 Unfortunantly, due to a lack of interest in this event the IEEC has had to cancel this two night trip. But a new soultion has been made with a event on April 30th going to Six Flags Amusement Park!

Upcoming IEEC Event: Six Flags Discovery Kingdom Event

This event is held Sunday, April 30th at 9:00am until 8:00pm. We will be meeting at the flagpoles on SSU campus then we will take off for Six Flags for the Vallejo location. The price of this event is $35 and this includes transportation to and from the event, some snacks for  the day, and the ticket for the park! Whether you like roller coaster or not, Six Flags is fun for everyone! In addition to rides, there are shows, delicious fair food, games, and much more!

Seawolf Living Event: Clothesline Project

This three day event in Salazar Plaza starts Tuesday, April 4th starting at 10:00am till 2:00pm with the same time frame for April 5th and April 6th.

The following passage was taken from the Seawolf Living website. Please follow the link below for more information.

http://www.seawolfliving.com/featured/2017/4/4/clothesline-project

“The Clothesline Project was created to bring awareness to the issue of violence against women. For women who have been affected by violence, it is a means of expressing their emotions by decorating a t-shirt. After the shirts have been decorated, they are hung on a clothesline display. The intention of the display is to honor survivors and act as a memorial for victims. It is also intended to aid in the healing process for those who were directly affected and those who have lost someone special to violence. Lastly, the clothesline display is to educate society and promote awareness, as well as to document violent crimes against women.”
