Welcome from President

Dear all,
welcome to the International Student Centre and welcome to Edinburgh! Here at the ISC we would like to provide a platform for both international and UK students to meet people and make friends from all around the world as well as brighten up that before, between and after lectures routine in our relaxing environment. We are open every day during the Freshers Week from 11am to 4pm [and 6pm on Thursday] - I would like to encourage all of you to
drop by, enjoy a free cup of tea or coffee and experience what we have to offer.

As the year starts we are looking for volunteers, who would like to spend an hour (or more) a week staffing our Lounge, arranging events or helping out with the planning of our weekly trips. Volunteering is a great opportunity to get to meet people as you will be the first point of contact; it is a perfect way to become a part of a truly international network and all in all a very rewarding experience. Your participation and help are absolutely crucial for our success - volunteering is a win-win situation!
I look forward to seeing many new faces in the ISC during the coming week, and indeed the coming semester and beyond. I hope that all of you will at least stop by once and feel the atmosphere of our lounge. If you have any questions, or if you want to help out, please do not hesitate to approach one of the committee members that will be present at our Lounge.
Good luck to all of you in your studies as well as in any other endeavour you may undertake while here in Edinburgh.

Sincerely yours,
Jonathan Riise
