We are excited to announce that our ISPY Community has restarted a few of our weekly groups at OISS this semester! These groups are aimed at our international spouses and partners at Yale, but are open to other members of the Yale community as well. Please take a look at three of the groups we have going on this semester, and we hope to see some new faces in the office this spring!
