Dear I-House Alumni and Friends,
As we approach the completion of our Dining Commons Transformation Project, we are pleased to share this behind the scenes look at our progress. Completion of construction is scheduled for June, 2015. We’re looking forward to welcoming you back to dining under the dome. Be sure to check out our temporary dining facilities at the Stadium Field Club.
Tickets are still available for our 27th annual Celebration and Awards Gala on April 30th, I-House’s signature event that celebrates those championing the values of International House in their personal and professional lives. More details below.
I hope you will join us this Saturday, April 18th for our Resident Life Showcase on Cal Day, complete with a photo booth, House tours, videos and resident presentations. Keep an eye out later this Spring for news of the Fall Cultural Homecoming in October, formerly known as SpringFest.

From the Blog: Where are they now? David Fanfan (IH 1999-2000)
“The I-House experience taught me that I had colleagues from all over the world that shared the same ambitions, ready to make a positive impact on the world as a whole, not just for their respective countries and local communities.” Read interview.
