“This night gives our local community a chance to sample flavors of international culture for the eyes, ears and pallet,” said Lauren Braun, international student coordinator. “It will certainly be a memorable event for all who attend.”

During the dinner, students will entertain guests with traditional and modern songs, performances, dances, music and skits. Among the performances, there will be an international fashion show where students will display traditional attire from their home countries.
