Members of The University of Toledo International Student Association will wear clothing from the 1950s to 1980s at the 39th Annual International Dinner this weekend.
The event will be held Saturday, March 21, from 7 to 11 p.m. in the Student Union Auditorium. Doors open at 6 p.m.
UT Interim President Nagi Naganathan will be the guest speaker.
“Dr. Naganathan will give a speech about the importance of inheriting and holding on to your country roots and origins,” said Shagufta Sami, UT graduate student studying computer science and media officer with the International Student Association. “He also will talk about his experiences that help and inspire all international students at The University of Toledo.”
Some 500 are expected to attend the dinner, which will feature culturally diverse cuisine and performances by UT students.
“This is a huge event for the organization; it is open to everyone. Students from around the world will bring out their culture, food, dance, music and much more,” Sami said. “This night offers dinner, traditional performances and a fashion show from several countries — India, China, the Philippines, United Arab Emirates, Nepal, South Africa, America, Iran and others.”
Tickets — $10 for students, $15 for non-students, and $5 for children 13 and younger — are on sale at Ask Rocky in the Student Union and are going fast, according to Sami. If available, tickets will be sold at the door.
