International Student Day a hit

On November 7, I.S. Day 2011 featured dozens of international dishes prepared by students. Students, faculty, and staff sampled the food and supported the International Student Organization.

Yesterday, the International Students Organization and the Office of International Students and Scholars hosted International Student Day 2011 and its annual international food festival.

The festival featured dishes from more than two dozen countries.  Students prepared native dishes for the hundreds of people who cycled through the Campus Center Carroll Room.  Dishes ranged from sweet, like the Canadian maple apple crisp and honey cake from Moldova to savory, like Khachapuri and beans from Georgia, and spicy like the Nigerian fried rice and kimchi from South Korea.

A steady line of students, faculty, and staff cycled through the festival trying foods and talking to the students hosting the tables.  Student representatives from two dozen countries (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Canada, the Caribbean, China, Croatia, Georgia, Germany, Ghana, India, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Kenya, Moldova, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, and Zimbabwe) served food to hundreds of guests.  All proceeds from the event benefit the International Students Organization.
