“International Dinner stands as one of the most prestigious international events on the University campus,” Taufik Mohammad, president of the International Students Association, said. “The dinner provides our students from around the world the opportunity to showcase their culture, traditions and sense of community.”

“We have plantains, Vietnamese spring rolls, fattoush and fatayer for starters,” Mohammad said. “For main dishes, we have veg biryani, chicken curry (halal), naan bread, homestyle tofu, jerk chicken (halal), chicken tacos, and veg and chicken noodles.”

Dessert will include mango and strawberry cake, as well as baklava, he added.

Food won’t be the only thing on the menu. There will be international performances from several organizations, including the Ethiopian Student Association, Filipino American Association, and the South American and Hispanic Student Association.
