The Center for International Studies kicks off its 20th year at Saint Louis University
The Center kicked off the year-long celebration with a Welcome Back Party for faculty, staff and students on Thursday, September 9th, 2016 in the Center for Global Citizenship.
Dr. David Borgmeyer, Director and Assistant Professor of the Center for International Studies, greets the crowd of faculty, staff and students during the Center's 20th Anniversary Kick-Off Party.
Student representatives from the International Studies Honor Society, Sigma Iota Rho (SIR), were also on hand to present information on the Honor Society and their plans for the Anniversary Year. SIR President Samuel Shreve, along with SIR Vice President of Finance and Social Media Bridget Walde, explained that Sigma Iota Rho is not only a great way to gain greater international exposure, but allows you to actively engage and participate in cross cultural experiences which provide well rounded perspectives in your academic studies. They also made it clear that anyone who has an interest in international studies is welcome to join SIR as a participating club member, including faculty. Juniors and seniors have the ability to become part of the SIR national honor society as well. SIR allows for students on the SLU and SLU Madrid campus to open doors to additional exciting intercultural events, activities, and mindsets that many students do not have the opportunity to be exposed to. It enables students to discover new fascinations and build on continuous ones thanks to the strong backing of the Center for International Studies.
SIR Officers (l to r): Bridget Walde and Samuel Shreve
