JFKI Summer Party: The annual Summer Party is a proud tradition of the JFKI and a great way to end the Academic year. It is a chance to socialize with friends, colleagues and instructors before starting into the long semester break. The timing of the party allows students who are planning to travel abroad for Academic exchange to say goodbye to the Institute and to their friends. It is also perfectly timed to welcome back the students who are coming back from their Academic exchange programs. The occasion usually also attracts several alumni and alumnae of the John F. Kennedy Institute and the Graduate School of North American Studies who come to visit and reconnect with old friends and Professors. Attendees enjoy group activities, grilled specialties and various food and drink option in the warm, sunny weather.
