Want to meet and hang out with American students as well as other international students? Curious about how to start conversations with new people? Have questions about American culture? Join ISAO for our very first Speed-Friending event on November 10th from 4:30 to 6:30 pm in the School of Law ground floor Student Lounge!
What is “Speed-Friending”? Here’s how it works:
You will have 2-3 minutes to chat with a domestic/American/local student
Then, you’ll move on to the next person allowing you to meet 20-30 people!
We’ll provide conversation starters for a low-pressure, accepting, and FUN environment!
We are already expecting about 50 domestic/American/local students so spots are limited.
You MUST SIGN UP ahead of time! See the flyer below for day, time, and location.
Only those who sign up will be allowed to participate. If spaces are filled and you would like to be put on the wait-list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org using the subject line: SPEED-FRIENDING WAIT-LIST. Be sure to put your full name and student ID number.

We are so excited you’ve arrived and we hope to help you adjust to your new home away from home. Cars and bicycles are not the easiest things to pack when travelling internationally but the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority (KCATA) offers a great transportation alternative! All UMKC students pay for a “transportation fee” that gives students access to the KCATA bus system, also known as “The Metro”. The only thing you have to do when you get on the bus is show your UMKC student ID!
Tips for new bus riders:
As a first-time Metro rider, you can easily access helpful instructions to plan your trip by bus. We welcome the opportunity to help you get started. Take a look at our “How-To-Ride” Video series to show you the ins and outs of riding The Metro. Also, be sure to:
Depending on the type and form of edema, you can buy Lasix online in a form that is convenient for you personally. But remember, that it is needed to read its instruction for the use and consult a doctor before buy Accutane. Just buy Bactrim online cheap and start the treatment as soon as possible.
