International Student Brunch

Our 1st International Student Brunch was held on February 19, 2023 at GAIT.  

On this occasion, almost 180 international students as well as administrators, faculty, and staff, has attended.  During this event, people were invited to enjoy food and discussion with other international students and members of the Bishop’s University community. After the meal, we had the chance to move outside for a tasting of delicious maple sugar on snow.  Here are some souvenir pictures of the event:
