UIS hosts 35th annual International Student Festival
WHAT: The University of Illinois Springfield presents the 35th annual International Festival with the theme “Spice It Up”.
WHEN: Friday, November 9, 2012 from 5-8 p.m.
WHERE: Student Life Building (SLB), located on the east side of the UIS campus. Parking is available in lot B, located next to SLB. A map of campus is available at www.uis.edu/maps/.
DETAILS: For over 30 years, the University of Illinois Springfield family has celebrated its rich international and cultural diversity with the annual International Festival. Friends from the greater Springfield community will be joining UIS students, faculty, and staff to share an evening of cultural recipes and 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 admission. Guests will have the opportunity to make a recipe book during the event. Every vendor will feature a unique recipe for guests to add to their recipe book.
Be sure to pick up a program as you enter, so that you can find your way to the exhibits, cuisine, and performances in which you are most interested. Plan to spend some time getting to know people you have never met before, literally from every part of our world!
