Friends of International Students Summer Informational Meetings

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Invitation: FIS Host Program Summer Informational Meetings
You’re invited to learn more about the Friends of International Students (FIS) Host Program
at one of our upcoming information meetings.
Dear Faculty and Staff–
International Student & Scholar Services invites you to learn more about our Friends of International Students host program.
• The program provides a terrific opportunity for you to meet people from around the world, and to connect with a student in an individual way.
• It’s a friendship program. Contacts between student and family are arranged on your own terms.
• To date, the Class of 2019 will include more than 70 international students, including some U.S. students who live abroad.
• In September, we also will welcome over 12 international exchange students.
• Most of the students participate in our program, so we will need many new hosts.
We have 2 remaining information sessions this summer.
If you are interested in exploring the possibility of serving as a host to an international student, please register to attend one of these information meetings in the Service Building, Second Floor, Room 200.

• Wednesday, August 12, 12:15-1:00 p.m.
• Thursday, August 20, 5:15-6:00 p.m.

Please feel free to bring your lunch to our afternoon meeting.
We hope you will be able to join us. However, if you cannot attend a session and are interested in the program, please let us know.
TO REGISTER: Please contact Carolyn Dahm, ISSS Administrative Coordinator, by email at isss@middlebury.edu or by telephone at 443-5858. (Your email reply will go directly to the ISSS office mailbox. In either your email or phone message, please provide your name, email address, and phone number.) Even if you have been a host in the past, please contact us to register for a meeting, both to share your experiences with potential hosts and to learn about the upcoming year of the FIS program!
Please share this information with friends and family who do not work at the College.
We invite all who are interested in learning more about the program to attend a meeting.

HOW TO DISCONNECT?
Technology has provided new ways to stay connected to friends, family, and the workplace. But some studies have shown that all this connectivity may lead to more stress and sleep disturbance and make it harder to connect with people outside of the virtual world. By giving ourselves a rest from technology, especially after work hours, we can better recharge our mental batteries.

LifeScope can help with:

  • Articles and tip sheets on  managing technology usage, connecting with friends and family, and mindfulness
  • Audio on daily relaxation tools
  • Video on meditation
  • Information on community recreation and volunteering
  • 24/7 access to confidential counseling to support efforts to improve ‘technology-life’ balance

FREE WEBINAR: INFORMATION OVERLOAD
This free webinar will review practical tips for managing your devices and applications to help eliminate distraction and create more focus in your personal and professional life. To register, log on to www.LifeScopeEAP.com with your institution username and password. In the middle of the homepage, click on ‘Online Seminars‘ then “Information Overload” to sign up. If you are unable to attend, look for the archived webinar under Online Seminars, approximately 7-10 days after the live presentation.

BALANCING SCREEN & FACE TIME
July Tips for Taking Action

You may also be interested in viewing the following tip sheets, which can be found by logging on to www.LifeScopeEAP.com with your institution username and password, and clicking on the ‘Monthly Communications’ button on the top left corner of the homepage.

“Is Your Teenager Bored? How About Volunteering?” – If you find that your adolescent has a considerable amount of downtime, or becomes easily bored when not doing something that involves electronics, volunteering may be a way for your child to explore a new interest, plan for the future, or pursue a hobby or skill. This article lists types of volunteer opportunities and community organizations you might consider as a starting point.

“More Face Time, Less Screen Time”- As certain technologies begin to feel more like a necessity and less like a luxury, some people are finding that they tend to spend less time relating to other people face-to-face. This article provides suggestions for how to re-establish these connections and the benefits of doing so.

“Nomophobia”- Do you experience anxiety or panic over losing your phone, cell reception or battery life? Do you obsessively check for missed calls, e-mails, and texts? Do you miss out on opportunities for face-to-face interactions? If so, you may have cell phone addiction or nomophobia – an abbreviation of “no-mobile-phone-phobia.” Read this article to learn more.

The July Calendar, Poster/Webinar Promo, and Spanish Language Poster can also be accessed on the member website by clicking on the ‘Monthly Communications’ button on the top left corner of the homepage.
