The Seymour Union Ballroom could have been mistaken for the lobby of the United Nations on Thursday (March 25) as the 8th annual International Festival spotlighted Brockportís international students along with their cultures and cuisines.

The audience of several hundred were welcomed by international student MCs Aysha Harrop and George Buchukuri, along with the International Student Organization president Ly Nguyen, and Leah Barrett, assistant vice president of enrollment management and student affairs.

Entertainment included Kabuki theater, Indian and Mexican dance, Bulgarian folk tunes, Vietnamese music; and a dance choreographed by student Jason Arych, performed by international dance majors and dedicated to the victim of the recent earthquake in Haiti. (in addition, proceeds from the eventís silent auction also went to Haitian earthquake relief.)

The International Festival was sponsored by Brockportís International Student Organization, the College-Wide Diversity Committee, the Division of Enrollment Management and Student Affairs, and the Office of Leadership and Community Development.
