It's hard to fit

a toaster oven, a mini-fridge, a coffee maker, a lamp, a microwave, a garbage can, a desk, a chair, and a futon

... into the overhead cabinet.

The University YMCA doesn't charge International Students for entrance because International Student & Scholar Services is a co-sponsor and supporting partner of the event.

Historically and currently, the Y welcomes International Students to the C-U through events and programs, many of which are free and open to anyone who'd like to attend. These include our International Welcome Reception (coming up on August 19th at 5pm!); Cosmo Coffee Hours on Thursdays throughout the semester; Global Lens International Film Series; and the International Dinner & Performance Night each Spring.
