Diversity is the word that best
describes Rive Gauche, where
students from 80 different coun-
tries come together to exchange
ideas, learn about each other,
and just plain enjoy themselves.
Located at the corner of East
University and Hill, Street, Rive
Gauche is an international coffee
house open every Mo n d ay
through Saturday from 8:00 to
12:00 to all members of the com-
munity. Thursday is a, particu-
larly good time to attend, since
free refreshments are served.
Rive Gauche coffee house is
sponsored by the International
S t u d e n t s Association (ISA),
which also runs a number of
other programs. For instance, two
nights a week ISA holds language
nights at Rive Gauche, when
everyone speaks a certain for-
eign language. During the past
year, French, Spanish, Indian,
Chinese and Arabic language
nights were held, among many
ISA has a membership of over
300, foreign and American stu-
dents. According to ISA presi-
dent In-Kuin Kim, it is the only
organization on campus which is
dedicated to bringing together
people f r o m differnt countries
and Americans. He says that
foreign students experience a
great deal of pressure when they
first come to the University be-
cause they must produce aca-
demically while trying to adjust
to a new language and culture.
As a result, most foreign stu-
dents fall into a pattern of spend-
ing most of their time in the li-
brary, never m e e t i n g many
American or foreign students
except people from their own
At the same time, In-Kuin Kim
complains that "most American
students pass up a golden once
in a lifetim'e opportunity by not
meeting the foreigners who are
at the University." To alleviate
this situation, ISA was organized
three years ago.
