Tree-trimming party gives overseas students a taste of Canada

A tree-trimming party Tuesday in the International Student Centre attracted dozens of participants representing countries around the world.

Aoi Ishimaru, an exchange student in art history from Tokyo’s International Christian University, said she wanted to experience a Canadian Christmas.

“I wanted to taste Canadian-style treats—cookies and apple cider,” she said. “It was very nice.”
