LINCOLN UNIVERSITY- On Thursday the International Students Association hosted their “All around the world in one day” event in the SUC Ballroom from 11a.m. to 1 p.m.
The event consisted of international students catering their favorite back-home meals, along with international music. Meals represented countries such as Thailand, Senegal, Malawi, Haiti, Sierra Leone, Ethiopia, Jamaica and many more.
“Nsima” was a particular meal from the country of Malawi that sophomore Kelvin Beza served. “This event not only shows the diversity of the campus, but it brings all of us together,” said Beza. This is Beza’s second year in America and although he has enjoyed his time here, he does miss the energy of Malawi.
With students coming together on the campus for the event, everyone had the opportunity to taste samples from many different countries. “I have a few friends that are from different countries back home, so I wanted to come and see how well this event would be,” said Amari Anderson, a sophomore accounting student.
This was the first time the ISA hosted the event on campus. “It honestly was a great turn-out, I wasn’t expecting so many people to come –we had a really good time,” said President of the ISA, Caroline Wanjiru, a graduating senior from Kenya.
