INTERLINK Student Activities

Walk for Japan

For the Spring 2, 2011 term, INTERLINK made it a priority to offer more student activities. Dr. Brad Teague, Director of INTERLINK, and Catherine Velásquez, Office Assistant, worked hard to come up with activities that would be both enjoyable and beneficial for students and that would simultaneously provide them with opportunities to make American friends. Some of the activities INTERLINK promoted during the Spring 2, 2011 term included: Walk for Japan, International Student Beach Trip, Freedom Riders Screening, RAD Class, Rock Climbing, and a Hike to Hanging Rock.

The Walk for Japan took place on April 8th at 3:30pm. INTERLINK students and staff met at the MHRA Building on campus to walk and show their support for the victims of the Japanese Tsunami and Earthquake.

RAD class

On April 11, INTERLINK organized a RAD (Rape Aggression Defense) class. INTERLINK's promotion of the RAD class was a big hit and plans are underway to offer a more in-depth course next term.

Catherine Velásquez took two groups of students rock-climbing on April 18 and April 21 to the Edge Wall on the UNCG campus.

Instructor Sarah Gulley led a day-long hiking trip to Hanging Rock on Sunday, May 1. Students walked about 2.5 miles and took in the beautiful scenery.

INTERLINK plans to offer even more student activities over the summer and in subsequent terms. By participating in such activities, students have fun, meet other people on campus and in the community, and benefit from out-of-class learning opportunities.
