Welcome to the International Nest. This is a dedicated space for international students and those interested in getting to know them, located in 34 Parks Library. There are two areas within the Nest. The main room is for relaxing, socializing, and even studying, and the second room has four small study spaces, white boards, and three computers.


There are games, craft supplies, and coloring books available for use.

Come visit and mark your hometown on the map.
