Global Connections Presentations, Pecha Kucha Style
In honor of International Education Week  we are holding this special event (during what is usually our Global Cafe) to give internationally-minded students the opportunity to share their stories with the Tulane community.   The “Global Connections” theme also applies to this event, and members of the international community will be sharing experiences of what they have gone through while adapting to the states, stories from home, and highlights from their research and work here at Tulane.
·         When: Monday, October 17th, 3:00 to 5:00 PM
·         Where: Pedersen Lobby, LBC (Bldg. 29)
What is Pecha Kucha?
Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of “chit chat”, it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It’s a format that makes presentations concise and keeps things moving at a rapid pace. For more information, visit

Sign up below to welcome our international students by hosting them for lunch or dinner at your home or dorm!
