Children from the Toledo area will learn about other cultures and countries from international students at The University of Toledo at an upcoming event called “Oh, The Places You Will Go.”

The Boys & Girls Club of Toledo event will take place Friday, March 22, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Homer Hanham Club, 2250 N. Detroit Ave.

The children from the club will get to interact with UT students from all around the globe. Destinations will include Saudi Arabia, Germany, China, Iran, Africa and the Philippines.

UT students will host rotating activities to teach the kids about their home countries through native dances, crafts and food samples.

Rocksy will join the children in “traveling the world,” and they will have opportunities for photos with the mascot.

The UT Center for International Studies and Programs is helping to coordinate the event.
