Calendar of Events & Activities

In addition to the events and activities listed there is a monthly e-newsletter (coming to your UWO e-mail account) and spontaneous activities based on your needs. The International Student Guide and the Food and Services Directory are two resources that will assist you in your adjustment to life at Brescia and introduce you to various aspects of London.

BMC (Brescia Multicultural Club) has a membership of Brescia and CultureWorks students. BMC’s objective is to bring international students together with domestic students to share cultural experiences and traditions and to support international students through potential adjustment challenges. This will be accomplished through participating in International Student Programs as well as planning and participating in the club's chosen activities.

“Our World at Brescia”

Student Connector Program – The Student Connector Program is an informal program that connects incoming international students with upper year students. The purpose of the program is for the upper year students to act as ambassadors and welcome the international students and assist with the transition to Brescia and London.

For more information visit the Student Connector pages.

These partnerships enhance our cultural awareness and continue to build our Brescia community.
