Global Education invites you to iCafé – See the USA!


iCafé is a virtual trip around the world to explore new cultures, cuisines and celebrations. In our summer 2021 series, we visit the United States of America with iCafé - See the USA!

Travel Trivia, hosted by Extension International, is back with gift cards to the winners (compliments of Recreation); and don’t forget our savory segment for Chefs, the Cook Club hosted this summer by the Retirement Association, will feature great American recipes. Yum and fun!

New summer iCafé segments include:

  • Native Voices, hosted by the Intertribal Resource Center – expand your cultural knowledge and experience of Native American communities.
  • A Walk in the Park, hosted by Global Education – explore a different state or national park in the U.S.!
  • Sporting Tritons, hosted by Athletics – boost your team spirit with top American sports and Triton Tide info!
  • Roamin' with Rashma, hosted by the Out-of-State and International Outreach Programlearn about local destinations in and around the San Diego area for fun day trips this summer! 

iCafe is free and open to everyone! Additionally, we invite fellow travelers to be Cultural Ambassadors and share a story or experience from any of the U.S. states and territories. We will travel all over the U.S. each week to explore what this vast and diverse country has to offer. If you are from the U.S., or have visited the U.S., please consider offering a short presentation. Email Debi Gianni at dgianni@ucsd.edu to sign up!
