International Evening

It’s not often you find dinner choices ranging from mutton stew to kaiserschmarrn, sushi, brigadeiros, lamb kabsa, and mac and cheese. But during Friday’s International Evening celebration, it was all that and more. (See complete list below.) With the help of our dining services staff, students prepared foods to represent their states, countries, and culture, and staffed stations adorned with posters, apparel, maps, and flags. Following this amazing buffet, it was on to Cowell Chapel for their performances. Congratulations to all for this festive and memorable event!
