Intercultural Awareness Event - Carolina Panthers Game with International Students

Info: This experience is a great chance for graduate students to interact with international students, and help them understand American culture through football and its traditions. This semester's trip is on Monday, November 2nd to see the Carolina Panthers in Charlotte, NC. The cost is $95/student, which includes the ticket and transportation (charter bus). We will leave from UNCW at 2pm, and the game starts at 8:30pm. NFL games usually last about 3.5 hours, and we will head back to UNCW right after the game. Students can pay with cash or credit card in Friday Annex, Monday-Friday 8-5pm until we are sold out. Tickets are first come first serve. We ONLY have 14 spots left; we would love for graduate students to become engaged with our international students here at UNCW.
