Employees can sign up for the monthly pass and payroll deduction through Kathy Uecker, Payroll.

International Student and Scholar Services is looking for Faculty & Staff who are willing to host new international & exchange students for a meal in their home. Approximately 20-25 new students will be arriving to Minneapolis in at the end of August for Orientation. At the end of their week, we would love to have students have the opportunity to connect more with a faculty or staff member on campus, make connections, and have the chance to be in someone’s home.
Here are the details:
You will meet students at 5:30pm in the Oyate Commons (Christensen Center-Suite 2) on Thursday August 29th. We are asking for you to host 2-4 students and drive them to your home for a meal. We ask that you bring them back by around 8:30 pm or sooner. It helps to be hosting with someone, whether that is your partner, family or you can pair with another faculty or staff on campus.
If you are interested, please email Angela Bonfiglio at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking for around 2 more hosts, but I will have a backup list as sometimes conflicts arise as the summer goes on. Contact ISSS if you have any questions.

In the coming weeks, you will begin to see the installation of two different projects to celebrate the beginning of the Sesquicentennial. On August 1st, we will begin installing Each, together, a group action of the INSIDE OUT project that will include over 1,200 portraits. This installation will cover ten campus building facades along Riverside from 25th Ave South to Hoversten Chapel. These buildings will include the Flower Shop, Maintenance Facilities, Ice Arena, Anderson Music Hall, and Foss Center. Installation will begin at Foss Center and move toward 25th Ave S and will take four weeks to complete.
Also being installed during this time will be On This Spot, a historical views of the campus. This installation will cover a portion of the outside of Christensen Center and Sverdrup Hall, and various interior windows throughout campus. Installation for both projects will be complete before the start of the Fall Semester.
We look forward to celebrating with you, and appreciate your patience in the installation of these two projects.
