We hope you are enjoying the last few days of summer! The Office of Advising & Co-Curricular Programs has put together some information and resources that we hope will be helpful as you navigate the next few weeks.
In this semester, the EAP Center is offering a new program called EAP First Year Institute, where we will be discussing topics include campus resources, academic writing and reading, U.S. classroom, ChatGPT, academic integrity, college academic technology tools, and cultural diversity. Here is a link to the program flyer. The registration deadline is Wednesday, August 30, at 4:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time.
Meanwhile, the online magazine Global Expressions: Writing Beyond the Mother Tongue is calling for paper submissions. The purpose of this magazine is to celebrate and recognize the multi-language writers at Lafayette College and develop intercultural communications within our community by showcasing the writings written by multi-language writers. This is a very good platform for you to publish your second language writings. There is no specific requirement for the content or the genre of the article. It can be an essay from one of your writing classes; it can be a story that you want to share with other people about living in the US; it can also be a poem about friendship.
Here are some useful resources that recently added to the center’s website: Four-Year Academic Success Plan for International Students, a collection of useful technology tools and websites that are frequently used in the academic setting at Lafayette College, and a series of videos discussing areas that were mentioned by many international students as areas important but unfamiliar when they were adjusting to college life,
To learn more about the resources and programs provided by the EAP Center, please visit the center’s website: https://advising.lafayette.edu/eap/. You can also send emails to Tingting Kang at email@example.com to schedule a meeting or if you have any questions.
We plan to send out updates from our office each month!
See you soon!
