ISA Presents Annual International Dinner

Food and entertainment from countries around the world will highlight the 40th Annual International Dinner and Culture Show on Saturday, April 22, beginning at 6 p.m. at The Pointe in The Walter Pyramid. The theme of this year’s celebration is “Peace through Education.” The event is sponsored by the International Student Association (ISA), with co-sponsorship from Associated Students Inc. (ASI) and support from the Center for International Education (CIE) and the Office of the President and Provost.

Following a dinner of international cuisines prepared by The Grand Event Catering, the program will feature musical entertainment and dancing by international students and local performers. Along with the performances, students will display memorabilia and photos from their diverse cultures and countries. Attendees of this year’s show are automatically entered to win raffle prizes donated by area businesses.

Daniel Yoder, international student advisor in CIE, encourages faculty and staff to attend and suggests that they might also want to consider sponsoring student assistants from their departments who might not otherwise be able to attend.

“The dinner offers a unique opportunity for students to meet with faculty and staff outside of the traditional academic setting,” said Yoder.

“I’m really excited about our 40th Annual International Dinner celebration,” added Sandar Aung, president of ISA. “I’m looking forward to celebrating with International Student Association alumni and past and present faculty advisors on this very special occasion. In addition to that, many of our guests will be dressed in cultural attire. That’s something you don’t see often at other events.”

The cost for students is $20. Single tickets for faculty, staff and the general public are $30 each, and couples are $50. Be sure to get your tickets early as seating is limited for this special event. For more information or to purchase tickets, contact the Center for International Education in person in Brotman Hall 201, by phone at 562/985-4106, or via e-mail at cie-student@csulb.edu.
