Our host student finally arrived. His name is James and he’s a student at Nanjing University, but he’s actually Korean. We’re letting him bunk in our living room until my roommate and I can get an apartment somewhere in town.
So we spent yesterday running around Eugene. We showed him the University of Oregon campus and watched “Burn after Reading”, after which we hit up our popular bar and then went back to my friend’s house to play Halo.
Today was the first day of a two day training for International Student Orientation. It was a chance for me to re-unite with some of my summer collegues and meet some new people. We spent most of the day doing icebreakers and covering some boring need-to-know material.
