International Week and the International Fair

This past week was Johnson & Wales’ annual International week, which included several activities celebrating the cultural diversity of our student body! Each night the dining hall offered different themed dinners based on a different nations style of cuisine. I was able to attend the International Fair at the end of the week, I got to see the different garbs of each culture while trying snacks from different booths representing countries that students come from. I tried dates at the Saudi Arabia booth, had a henna design drawn on my ankle at the India booth, and talked to a student from Thailand about their superstitions and temples.

Johnson & Wales gives us the opportunity to connect with so many students from different nations and lets us all celebrate our world culture.
