August 25th: TCK Meeting with Intern Brenna Ketchum
This was a quick introduction to the TCK Intern and possibilities for connecting with other TCKs here at Lewis & Clark. All new TCKs were invited, and it was included in the International Student Orientation schedule.
September 8th: Meet-and-Greet with the TCK Board & Intern
This was a space for any and all TCKs to meet the new TCK Intern and the TCK Board! We did some icebreaker games to get to know each other and talked about the TCK events and opportunities coming up!
September 9th: Drop-In TCK Office Hours begin (and continue every Wednesday)
TCK Intern Brenna Ketchum’s Office Hours began this week (and will continue through the rest of the semester). She is available in the ISS Office (or virtually, if need be) to chat about any TCK-related questions or anything else you might need.
September 16th: Public/Open TCK Board Meeting
We held a public Board meeting for anyone who was interested in joining the Board, just to see how we plan events and make decisions for the TCK Club.
September 23rd: TCK Tuesday: Show & Tell!
Our first TCK Tuesday was a Show & Tell event where everyone brought an object or photo that related to their TCK identity. We plan to hold more events this year to showcase everyone’s TCK upbringings to connect us all.
October 6th: TCK Tuesday: Zoom Mural!
In our second TCK Tuesday, we created a TCK-themed mural over Zoom, just to relax and have some fun. You can view our creation on the front page of this webpage!
October 20th: TCK Tuesday: Guest Speaker Weam Elsheikh
We are so excited that Weam Elsheikh was able to join our TCK Tuesday event as a guest speaker! Check out the “Resources” tab (on the right) to see more about Weam & her Master’s Thesis on TCKs in college!
October 29th: Pumpkin Painting - TCK Club & ISLC
We had a blast hosting this in-person event with ISLC! We usually do a Pumpkin Carving event around Halloween, but we decided to make it a bit less messy this year. We plan to hold more in-person events in the spring, if possible!
November 10th: TCK Tuesday: Holiday Traditions
We discussed the holiday traditions that our families have! Some traditions have been inspired by the host cultures we have lived in, some by necessity, and some just by quirky things our families enjoy doing!
[November 21st - November 30th: Thanksgiving Break]
December 1st: TCK Tuesday: Study Break!
We did some mindfulness exercises, shared study tips, and got excited for the end of the semester! We are all looking forward to the upcoming break!
[December 17th - January 18th: Winter Break]
*Check back on this page for more information about our TCK Symposium! This year it will be virtual, which means that we will be able to invite more than just Lewis & Clark community members.
