The Society of International Students will be hosting the 38th Annual International Dinner March 29 at 6 p.m. This semi-formal event, entitled “Journey Around the World,” will be held in the Student Union Ballrooms.
Faculty, staff and students as well as members of the community are invited to come out and celebrate the plethora of cultures that VSU has to offer.
“For many students it’s a chance to experience the world without having to buy a plane ticket and to enjoy a cultural event from the comfort of VSU,” Lauren Braun, coordinator for international student services, said.
This year’s theme presents attendees with a global adventure for their eyes, ears and palates. The event will feature cuisine from the Americas, the Middle East, Europe and Africa as well as entertainment varying from an international fashion show to traditional dances and songs.
“For any VSU student who has never been to an international dinner, it’s an experience they should add to their VSU ‘bucket list’ of things to do before graduating. Even though attendees will not need a passport to enter, they will need a ticket,” Braun said.
Tickets are $20 for general admission and $10 for students. Children under the age of 5 are free. Tickets can be purchased by cash or check at the VSU Center for International Programs located at 204 Georgia Ave. near the Student Health Center.
