I-Place programs and events are designed with a number of purposes in mind. Some of our programs, such as employment workshops, immigration advising or tax assistance, provide international students with support in navigating some of the technical or legal aspects of the international student experience. Other programs, such as the International Festival, trips to local or regional sites, cultural events and other social activities help create a supportive international community and increase multicultural and international knowledge and understanding.
I-Place events are generally open to all students, faculty and staff at The Claremont Colleges as well as members of Community Friends of International Students and other members of the local community. However, at times, we do give students priority in joining those programs (such as trips) that may have limited space for participation.
We invite students to not only participate in I-Place events and programs, but to also participate in creating, planning and implementing activities. If you have ideas for programs or activities, or if you want to get more involved with I-Place programming, please contact us.
Annual I-Place Events
International Festival is an event that attracts over 1,000 students and members of the Claremont community to celebrate the various cultures of students at The Claremont Colleges. For over three decades, students have cooked homemade cuisine and set up country booths to share the love of their home countries with Claremont.
The International Autumn Gala is a night of great entertainment, international snacks and an intermission complete with a photo booth and raffle. This event is an opportunity for students across The Claremont Colleges to showcase their talents on a stage in front of hundreds of students, members of the community, faculty and staff. All performers, MCs, and most of the volunteers are students of The Claremont Colleges.
