International Wives Club fills serious need in Auburn community

11 Jun

The Graduate School’s International Wives Club is helping the wives of international students and scholars become acclimated to life in Auburn. Many of the club members gave up professional careers to move to a foreign country where they have no friends, a limited knowledge of the language and may not be able to work.

Club members typically meet once a week and swap stories while sampling cuisine from around the world. The club sometimes goes on trips to local destinations, such as the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art. Over the Memorial Day weekend, the group had a cookout where the husbands and children could also meet and mingle.
