On September 2, an event exclusive for international students in Fontbonne, especially newcomers, occurred in the president’s house. Students coming from other parts of the world had a nice meeting with Mr. Pressimone and his family. The point of this rather informal meeting, according to the president, was to appreciate international students who left everything behind in their country and came to Fontbonne for their desired education.
The meeting was full of colors as there are many students from Vietnam, Japan, China, India, Nepal, Saudi Arabia, etc. and some of them even put on their traditional costumes.

All the staff and current students show extreme hospitality and care for the new foreign students. There was almost no barrier of differences that stopped everyone to become friends. People came from different countries and background, but the dinner was fun and warm.
