    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

Anatomy of the OIP Weekly Newsletter

Every Sunday, I look forward to one of the most important resources for International Students – the OIP Newsletter! The Office of International Programs strives to make it as easy as possible for international students to thrive at CSS and beyond. Each week, it shares several things in the newsletter including:

  1. Drop-In Hours: Where students can schedule appointments and check-in meetings with Alison, OIP Director. There are also hours where students can stop by anytime and be assisted by one of the Office Assistants!
  2. General Announcements: These include events and activities going on on campus and in the local area. For instance, I just learned that the UMD International Club has an upcoming event geared at celebrating the club’s history and contributions on campus!
  3. Immigration Updates and Reminders: One of the most crucial parts of the Newsletter!
  4. Shopping Trips: Most international students do not have cars and since it can be expensive or inconvenient for them to rent cars to go to the grocery stars, the OIP organizes weekly trips to the mall and grocery store to give students running low on groceries or needing to go those places an opportunity to do so!
  5. Calendar: Upcoming events at CSS.
  6. Workshops & Events for Scholarship Requirements: The Global Benedictine Scholarship recipients are required to attend at least two events each academic year and this section highlights some events that students can go to!
  7. Job, Internship, and Summer Research Resources: This is a new addition to the newsletter and includes professional opportunities such as research, internships, etc.
  8. Last but not least, there is the Frequently Asked Questions/Information section!
