International Student Association gives away bubble tea
International Week kicked off with free small bubble tea in the EMU amphitheater. As soon as the table was set up, a line stretched into the 13th Avenue and University Street intersection.
Every day this week, the International Student Association will host at least one event to “integrate international and domestic students,” Louyi Farestrand, president of the ISA, said.
“International students are [here] and deserve some recognition,” Farestrand said. The week works to help improve the relationship between international and domestic students he said.
Ione Gassner clutched her bubble tea and said that I-Week helps explain different cultures on the University of Oregon campus.
“I worked at a bubble tea store and I really like bubble tea,” Gassner said about why she came out Monday afternoon, “and it’s free, so why not?”
Gassner isn’t an international student but said she has lots of friends that are. She will also be attending the coffee hour on Friday evening.
