International students invites you to a pool party
By Roseline Collins- Staff Reporter
Do not let the cold weather make you stay in this weekend, dive into an opportunity to make new friends and rock tropical attire with international students.
The International Student Program is hosting a free Hawaiian-themed pool party on Saturday, March 11 at Mount Rainier Pool.
The party serves as a way for students to come together and hopefully create new friendships while relishing free food and drinks in a warm place, said International Student Leadership council member Karen Kanazawa.
Mount Rainier Pool is at 22722 19th Ave. S.
If students would like to travel to the pool with the group, they can meet other students in Building 29 at 2:30 p.m. where the group will gather together and take the A-line bus to the pool.
The only expense required of attendees is enough money for bus fare, which covers riding to Mount Rainier Pool and returning to Highline.
Because it is a short drive, students can also drive by themselves or with a friend and meet the group in the lobby of the pool, said Kanazawa.
The event will run from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The party is free for students as it was paid for by the budget of the program.
To sign up for this party, students should come to the International Student Program office in the library on the fifth floor.
Information required for signup includes: email, student ID number, cell phone number, and signing a waiver.
The party is limited to 60 students and applicants are chosen on a first-come first-served basis.
Additional applicants will be waitlisted as other students may decide to not attend, Kanazawa said.
Students who attend should bring a swimsuit, towel, change of clothing, and other necessary items for the pool, said Kanazawa.
She said she wants students to have fun and enjoy their time at the pool but does not want it "to be all crazy," as pool and lobby rules should be respected and followed.
