Representatives from outside programs as well as fellow Ship students who have studied abroad will be present to answer questions. Hosted by the Office of International Programs. 

International Film, Juan of the Dead, "Juan de los Muertos", President’s Hall MPR, 7:00 p.m.

Juan is 40 years old, most of which he spent in Cuba doing absolutely nothing. Suddenly some strange things start to happen, people are turning violent attacking one to the other. Juan was first convinced it’s just another stage of the Revolution. Official media refer to the attacks as isolated incidents provoked by Cuban dissidents paid by the US government. Little by little Juan and his friends start to realize that the attackers are not normal human beings and that killing them is quite a difficult task. Juan decides that the best way of facing the situation is making some money out of it…..Sponsored by the Department of International Studies and the Office of Housing and Residence Life.
