globeThe 14th Annual Multicultural Day is coming!

Are you an NHTI ESOL Student interested in showing your college a little bit about your native country, language, food, music traditions and artifacts?  Are you an NHTI student interested in learning about the cultural diversity at NHTI?

On Tuesday, April 8, 2014, the Cultural Exchange Club and the Office of Cross-Cultural Education & ESOL will be hosting its Multicultural Day in the Wellness Center.  Participants will have tables where they can display the many aspects of their native countries to the rest of their NHTI community.

If you are an NHTI student interested in reserving a table for this event, please contact either the president of Cultural Exchange Club Puja Patel, or club advisors Aaron Hughes or Margaret Landsman, or drop by the Office of Cross-Cultural Education & ESOL in Sweeney Hall, Room 301, 230-4055.

Campus Safety Information Corner

As Spring Break approaches, the NHTI Campus Safety Department wants to remind everyone to travel safely and we offer these quick travel tips:

- Always be aware of your surroundings.

- Once you reach your destination, limit the number of people with whom you share your travel information.

- Once checked in, ask hotel staff if there are any areas you should avoid.

- Keep expensive jewelry and other valuables out of sight or in the hotel safe.

- Avoid being alone, and always tell someone you trust where you are going.

- Don’t accept beverages from people you don’t know or trust, and never leave your beverage unattended.  If you lose sight of your drink, get a new one!

- Most importantly, have FUN and ENJOY your trip!
