What’s better than pigging out and being stuffed after a Thanksgiving meal? The International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) hosted students from various countries around the world to learn about idioms on Nov. 14 in McMahon Hall. “Let’s Talk Turkey! Learn Idioms and Expressions for Thanksgiving” gave students a friendly environment where they could mingle while learning about frequently-used idioms and their meanings.

The ISSS works to ensure the successful integration and prosperity of international students. The University of Connecticut is committed to having a diverse environment throughout campus, fostering different cultures and students from not only across the nation, but across the world. In fact, seven percent of undergraduate students and 25 percent of graduate students are international.
