Wong International Centre
About the Wong International Centre
Established in 1997, the Wong International Centre (WIC) offers international students a “home away from home.” With the generous support of Gene D. Wong (’60), Acadia’s first graduate of Chinese descent, this Centre was created to provide support and information for Acadia’s many international students.
The Wong International Centre is a place to go to have your questions answered. Whether you need advice on applying for your income taxes or just need some help adapting to a new country—our Student Advisor and other staff members are here to provide you with the support you may need.
The centre is also available for student parties, events, dinners, etc. For more information on how to book the Wong Centre for an event, please contact the House Manager at email@example.com. Please note: Alcoholic beverages are not permitted in the Wong International Centre.
The WIC is located at 27 Acadia Street and is open daily from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. There are several internet drops throughout the house, as well as wireless internet access, a study room, and a kitchen where students can cook their favourite foods from home.
Shelby McPhee is the live in Student Assistant for the 2017-2018 Academic Year here at the Wong International Centre. If you would like to book the Centre for events or meetings please contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will be able to assist you or phone 902-585-1780.
