International club hosts Celebration

Kate Arroyo

The Washburn International Club will present the fifth annual Celebration of Cultures at White Concert Hall on Nov. 6 from 7 to 9 p.m.

The  event is free to the public, although goodwill donations will be accepted to support activities of the International Club. The International Club terms its mission as making the international presence more visible on campus and help build stronger ties between international students, American students and the Topeka community by sponsoring activities both on and off campus. The office of international students works with 185 students from 40 countries.

Students will be performing traditional and modern dances, singing and instrumental performances that represent their home nations. There will be a variety of display tables as well as Chinese calligraphy and paper cutting demonstrations. The program will also include an international fashion show and a martial arts demonstration. This student driven and directed event was very successful last year and should be a popular part of Washburn‘s family day activities.
