Colorado State University Office of International Programs Hosts Open House Nov. 13

Colorado State University’s Office of International Programs will host an open house Nov. 13 at its new location in Laurel Hall on the northeast section of the Oval on campus.

The open house runs from 1-5 p.m. and is free and open to the public. Laurel Hall, originally constructed in 1882, is one of the oldest structures on the Colorado Sate campus. Renovation work was completed in March 2001, when the Office of International Programs moved into the building.

The open house will feature tours of the building, displays and a slide/powerpoint show describing the office and its activities. At 4 p.m., there will be a ceremony to honor about 100 people who have made significant contributions to internationalization at Colorado State over the years. Refreshments will be served throughout the afternoon.

The Office of International Programs provides services including advising for international and study-abroad students; developing on campus international opportunities for the entire Colorado State community; and promoting international research and development projects. This July, Jerome B. Bookin-Weiner joined Colorado Sate as executive director of the office.

The Office of International Programs is open 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday during the academic school year, and 7:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday over the summer.
