International Club Celebrates Global Diversity with Annual Festival

by Alana J. Mauger

Montgomery County Community College’s International Club and the ESL/International Student Services Department invite the community to the Fifth Annual International Festival on Tuesday, April 15, from 5-9:30 p.m. General admission is $5; admission for children under age 12 is $3. MCCC students will be admitted free of charge with a valid student ID.

Festivities will be held in the College Hall Cafeteria and Conference area at the College’s Central Campus, 340 DeKalb Pike, Blue Bell. Students will transform the dining hall into a multi-cultural celebration with various performances from all over the world, including African and Bengali dances, Chinese folk dance, Latin songs, Mexican dance and more.

In addition, students, staff and community members will have the opportunity to sample international cuisine from more than 30 countries. Soft drinks will be available for a small fee.

This fun-filled family event brings together the college and local community to celebrate diversity and collective cultures.
