Get Involved at Providence
Many international students studying at Providence say that making friends and meeting new people lessens the impact of cultural transition. Making friends will also help in your academic success at Providence. Most Canadians welcome the opportunity to meet people from another culture. Make plans to attend the many banquets and student retreats that Providence offers. Remember there are evening activities, resident events, and tons of other things you can get involved in, including Student Council committees and helping at chapel. Here are some other suggestions for meeting people at Providence:
Sports, Recreation, and Leisure
Providence has both varsity and intramural sports, so there is something for everyone who wants to participate in team or individual sports. It’s a great way to meet people and will help you to stay physically fit and healthy.
All College and Seminary students are welcome to audition for a touring ensemble. There are both music and drama ensembles. You must audition to be a member of an ensemble and remember that tours often go to the U.S.A., therefore, depending on your citizenship, you may require an American visa.
Maybe you are shy and you want to work on your English language skills before being more involved at Providence. Or maybe you want to observe and learn more about Canada before venturing out to join music and drama groups or joining a sports team. There are other choices to gain your courage, try these options for involvement that are more focused toward international students.
