Students come to campus

Wednesday, November 09, 2005

The students came to campus October 10th-14th to prepare for the internship period, which goes from October 17th through mid-February. It was my first opportunity to meet most of the students, which was a great pleasure. They are a very close-knit group, which would tend to happen in a university with only 20 students. During the course of the week we went over the internship requirements, had a few lectures to help them with specific tasks, and met with Fr. McKnight, UNIF’s spiritual director. It was my job to translate, because Fr. McKnight, who is from Brooklyn, doesn’t speak much Creole yet, and the students, though quite fluent in French and Spanish, aren’t very strong in English. Hopefully that will change next semester!

I also had the chance to interview many of the students and take their photos; the biographies and articles that I wrote can be found on UNIF’s website,
