International Festival Celebrates Global Campus Community
The Center for International Services and Student Association will host the annual International Festival on Sunday, April 2, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. in Goldstein Auditorium, Schine Student Center. Now in its third year, the festival will feature 10 student organizations and offer a wide variety of food, cultural exhibits and performances.
“The International Festival creates an opportunity for our campus community to connect with student organizations, build intercultural understanding, learn more about the cultural traditions of the student organizations participating, and celebrate our richly diverse student body,” says Juan Tavares, director of the Central for International Services. “The students have put a lot of work into preparing for the festival and we are looking forward to a great event.”
This year’s student organization participants include the African Student Union, Caribbean Students Association, Chinese Union, European Student Association, Filipino Student Association, Haitian American Student Association, Mexican Student Association, South Asian Student Association, Turkish Student Association and Ukrainian Club at Syracuse University.
Admission to the event is free and includes the schedule of performances and tabling exhibits. The event will also feature a full menu of food samplings from the countries, regions and cultures of the participating student organizations. The food samples are $1 each (cash only).
