PLEASE NOTE: This event will only take place with the approval of the University of Toledo under strict guidelines to protect the health and safety of all participants.
Join us at 1 PM on Saturday, August 15 for our FREE ACT Welcome Cookout at the "Q" (between Parks and the Flatlands)! Hot dogs will be on the menu along with games and fun. Meet our students, our staff and find out what ACT is all about.
Free food, free fun, free fellowship - all free!
Where is the Q? The easiest way to find it is to meet us at the UT Student Union at 12:45 PM and everyone will walk over together.
Later on if you would like to see our campus house, let us know so we can take you on a personal tour!
HOW TO FIND THE ACT UT CAMPUS HOUSE:
If you are walking from campus start on the side of the student union with the bus loop. Begin walking, passing Memorial Field House, then go through Lot 13 which is in between the West Parking Garage and the Honors Academic Village. Once you pass the opening of the garage and get to a three way stop sign between Lot 13 and the street that leads to Rocket Hall, there is an Active Christians Today sign next to the path. The path will lead you to the backyard of the ACT house.
We need you to help change the world!
International students, immigrants and refugees from all over the world live in our city, and some need extra help practicing their English conversation skills. They are also just simply hoping to make an American friend! That's where you come in.
You can meet online via video chat or in person. The time is flexible, depending on your schedule, and we are looking for men and women who would be willing to spend an hour a week for one semester.
1. Fill out an online application at www.GO-UT.info .
2. We will contact you about a brief orientation if you are a first-time applicant.
3. We will coordinate a video call with you to meet your international friend.
4. From there you can continue to meet online or in person, whatever is your preference!
Your friendship as a Conversation Partner can make all the difference in the life of an international person! .

It has been a crazy end to the 2020 school year but through it all we kept our eyes on God and joy in our hearts. Enjoy some smiles from the last couple of weeks as we remember to: "Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." ~ 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
