vFor a burglar, student housing around college campuses can be tempting because the burglar knows that many homes will be unoccupied at times throughout the year.

That's why UA police and the city police will team up again to make free, periodic checks of unoccupied student homes over winter break. Learn more and sign up.

Spring 2012 Conversation Partner Program Jan. 2
Time: n/a
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image

Want to broaden your horizon? Would you like to meet international students at the The University of Akron? Are you interested in helping a student or two develop their English fluency?

The English Language Institute (ELI)---the UA's English program for international students---invites UA students, faculty, and staff to participate in its 2012 Spring Conversation Partner Program. Through this program, the ELI pairs one or two international students who are learning English in our program with an American partner---(this could be you)--- for one hour of informal conversation per week. You meet with the same student(s) every week.

ELI students come from all over the world and bring with them a wide variety of educational, political, cultural, religious, and linguistic backgrounds. This program is a great opportunity to learn about another country and culture AND to make an international student feel welcome here in Akron. The one-hour weekly meetings run for approximately 10-12 weeks of the semester.

Sign-up for the Spring 2012 Conversation Partner Program first thing in January. We will begin accepting applications on January 2 in the ELI Office in Olin Hall 302. Applications received before February 1 will be greatly appreciated! Does this sound interesting? Call 330-972-7544 for more information.
