SNACK CHAT! — West Bank Story

Tuesday, Feb. 20

5 to 7 p.m.

University Religious Center (URC) Room 203

"The Oscar goes to ... USC students!" In 2006 the Academy Award for Best Live-Action Short Film went to West Bank Story, produced by USC film students.

Join us as we air this 21-minute video at Snack Chat! The film gives a riveting look at both sides in the Israeli-Palestinian issue. But it also provides some much needed humor, featuring the "battle" between rival falafel stands, and a romance that transcends two cultures!

Snack Chat! this semester will run from 5 to 7 p.m. on Tuesdays. This will enable all those who have a class at 6 p.m. to come and enjoy some games and food before their class. It will also give a chance for those who have a class finishing at 6 p.m. to also come and enjoy food and interaction. Coming for the whole time is not necessary; we'll be glad to see you whenever you can make it.

Invite your friends, too. They'll find good conversation and encouragement. No charge!

Snack Chat! is a relaxed time of food, fun, and friends for international students. You can stop by and then leave for your next class, or stick around to make deeper friendships. We start at 5:00 p.m. with chatting and games. At about 5:40 p.m. we will enjoy tasty food of every variety including Chinese, Indian vegetarian, fruit, sweets, tea and juice.
Those who come at 6 p.m. can eat then and enjoy chatting and interaction.

Believe it or not ... a hike in Hollywood! See parts of Hollywood and the Hollywood sign on this easy 3.5 mile around Lake Hollywood Reservoir. Even though you're in the city, you can enjoy nature and get some good exercise and chat with others as you walk around the reservoir.

Wear sneakers and bring water and snacks for this morning jaunt. It's close by, so you will only be away from your studies about three hours.
