Cala Flippo

Cala (pronounced Kay-lah) Flippo is the Student Services Coordinator. She proudly calls herself the first friend and "the Mom" for all international students. In her position as Student Services Coordinator, Cala helps international students with all the "little things" that a college student in a foreign country needs help with. She will help you find solutions for academic issues and understanding relationships with professors and peers to learning how to pay a speeding ticket or change dorm rooms. Cala lived in South Africa for 9 years and in her heart, Africa is home.
