Join UIS students, faculty, and staff to share an evening of cultural exhibits, artistic performances, food tasting, and more.
WHAT: University of Illinois Springfield presents the 32nd Annual International Student Festival with the theme “Dancing Under the Stars”.
WHEN: Sunday, October 25, 2009 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.
WHERE: Public Affairs Center (PAC) on UIS campus
DETAILS: For over 30 years the University of Illinois Springfield family has celebrated its rich international and cultural diversity with the annual International Festival. This year’s Festival centers on the theme “Dancing Under the Stars” in recognition of the International Year of Astronomy. Friends from the greater Springfield community will be joining UIS students, faculty, and staff to share an evening of cultural exhibits, artistic performances, food tasting, and more, all with the international flavor that you have come to expect over the years.
Again this year, in order to make the Festival accessible to all, we are not charging any admission, and we are mixing the food, the exhibits, and many of the performances all in the same rooms. In “theme park” fashion, each room will represent a different part of the world with continual performances taking place throughout the evening. You will want to make your way to all parts of our “planet” to experience how the various countries and cultures represented express in dance and in other ways their recognition of their place under the stars. What a great way to learn about and from each other!
