International Festival to be Held April 4

Posted on Wednesday, March 28, 2012 [4:29 PM]

COLUMBIA, Ky. -- Guests to Lindsey Wilson College on April 4 can travel from Japan to Africa in less than an hour.

LWC will hold its annual International Festival and Language Awareness Day from 1-4:30 p.m. CT on Wednesday, April 4, in Biggers Sports Center, 360 Spickard Drive. The event is free and open to the public.

At the festival, LWC international students from almost two dozen countries will staff tables that exhibit items, clothing and facts about their countries. The international students will also teach visitors a few phrases in their native languages.

If a guest visits all of the tables, they will be eligible to sample dishes from around the world, many of which will be prepared by LWC students.

"It's a great way to learn about countries all over the world, right here in Southcentral Kentucky," said LWC Assistant Director of the International Student Programs Justin Cason. "It's a really amazing experience, especially for kids, because our students love to tell people about what it's like in their countries."

This school year, LWC's undergraduate student body includes a total of 94 international students from 34 countries from Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and Latin America.

"Because we have so many international students on campus, we have a great cultural exchange among our students," Cason said. "You learn so much about other countries simply by living in the residence halls, eating in the dining center or going to class. This experience truly does globalize your educational experience at Lindsey Wilson."

The Lindsey Wilson College International Festival and Language Awareness Day will be from 1-4:30 p.m. CT on Wednesday, April 4, Biggers Sports Center, 360 Spickard Drive. For more information, contact the LWC  International Student Programs office at info@lindsey.edu or (270) 384-8523.
