CGE Announces Fall 2017 Global Café Dates
The Global Café scheduled for Friday, September 29, 2017, has been canceled.
We welcome you to join our next Global Café: Puerto Rico on Friday, October 6, hosted by the Puerto Rican Student Association. This event will support Puerto Rico’s hurricane relief.
FSU’s Center for Global Engagement will co-host four Global Cafés in fall on select Fridays from 11:30 a.m. until food runs out in The Globe Dining Room.
Students, faculty, staff, and members of the Tallahassee community enjoy authentic international cuisine and music at this student-led fundraiser for just $7 per plate (cash or check only). Fall semester Global Café dates and co-hosts include the following.
- September 29, Myanmar, InternatioNole
- October 6, Puerto Rico, Puerto Rican Student Association
- October 20, South Korea, Korean American Student Association
- November 3, Caribbean Islands, Caribbean Student Association
This student-centered program increases awareness and appreciation of cultural diversity on our campus. InternatioNole will host the first Global Café of the semester featuring Myanmar.
“We hope to connect students to a culture we don’t interact with often,” said Ignacio Diaz, 2017-2018 president of InternatioNole. “Myanmar is rich in culture. They are a complex and diverse society, which we hope attendees can appreciate in part through their delicious food.”
InternatioNole’s mission is to create connections and friendships between international and domestic students in a positive environment. To find out more and get involved, search for “InternatioNole” on Facebook.
This event counts as an intercultural event for the Global Citizenship Certificate.
