Come to Multi-cultural Day!
Tuesday March 31, Wellness Center Gym, 12-2:30 pm
Anyone wandering into the NHTI gym this Tuesday afternoon might be forgiven for thinking they had strayed into the bazaar of some exotic foreign country.
Colorful clothing will dazzle the eye. The smells of unfamiliar yet alluring foods will beguile the nose. The polyglot sounds of a dozen languages will clash in the ear, vying to be heard over the sounds of music from many cultures. Everywhere will be seen the arts and artifacts of countries from around the globe. Yet this is not a marketplace, and nothing is for sale. Food is free for the tasting, and everything on display is intended for the education and enjoyment of all
This is NHTI’s 15th Annual Multicultural Day, organized by the college’s own Cultural Exchange Club and its Office of Cross-cultural Education. The food, artifacts, displays, music, and dancing are provided mostly by NHTI students – whose ethnic backgrounds encompass more than sixty different countries – along with select members of the faculty and staff, and a few off-campus organizations. The event is free, and the public is invited to join the college in this annual celebration of its cultural diversity.
Show Date: Friday April 24
