Join the Conversation

International Hands graphicThe Conversation Partners Program promotes cultural exchange between native English-speaking students and non-native English-speaking students at NHTI.  For non-native English speakers, the program is an opportunity to meet Americans, learn more about American culture, and practice their spoken English.  For native English speakers, the program provides an opportunity to meet people from different countries and to learn more about different cultures.

How to Get Started

Visit the Cross-Cultural Education and ESOL Office in Sweeney 301 and fill out a sign-up form.  The ESOL Clerk or ESOL Coordinator will provide a handbook to read before their first meeting.  The handbook is also available at

Love from the Library

Library Valentines

What do librarians love to love?  Books, of course!  (And probably other things too, but that's none of our business!)

Just in time for Valentine's Day comes a heart-warming exhibit of the books our NHTI librarians love most!  (This is just a small sampling in the photo above.)  You might be surprised at some of their choices!

Visit the Library with your sweetheart and see for yourself.  It's a date!
