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 33rd Annual International Student Festival with the theme “Fun and Games Around the Globe”.
WHEN: Friday, September 10, 2010 from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m.
WHERE: Due to the weather, performances, food, and booths are being moved to the Student Life Building. Tournaments taking place throughout the day on the UIS quad will continue outside as planned, unless the weather worsens.
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 “Fun and Games Around the Globe” in recognition of the many ways in which the people of the world play and celebrate together. Friends from the greater Springfield community will be joining UIS students, faculty, and staff to share an afternoon and 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 the performances during the same time period and in the same location. You will want to sample each of the ethnic foods, participate in the games, visit the information booths, and stay around for all the various performances. What a great way to learn about and from each other!
