"Friends of Internationals wanted to participate in the International Bazaar because it is a great way to interact with all the different groups here on campus and in the Tallahassee community. Sometimes it is hard to find other people who enjoy learning about different cultures and traditions but the International Bazaar provides all those with a desire to learn the opportunity to explore. We are all able to experience the cultures that make our world so interesting!"
"In Unity there is strength", is our motto. We have participated in every international bazaar and found it to be essential and beneficial to the student body and Tallahassee for that matter. It allows us and our members to learn and participate with other cultures, and for that we are eternally grateful, and besides where else can you eat so much food from different places? (hey besides Disney world)
- VP of the Haitian Cultural Club of Tallahassee
"I look forward to participating in the International Bazaar every year with the Haitian Cultural Club. Every year, I learn and meet someone new from another culture. It makes me realize the great diversity that exists at FSU and the larger community."
- Rosie Justilien
"For MEPA, the Bazaar is not only a chance to teach people about the Middle East, but a chance for people to learn how we all fit into the global community. It brings cultures to life, and makes what may seem foreign to some a very real and tangible experience."
- Kathleen Johnson
VP Middle East Peace Association, Bellydancers etc.
"In the world today, prejudice is still such a large problem that we often get caught up in downplaying our differences. However when you have an event like this, it reminds you of how precious they still are. If you treat it the right way, cultural diversity enhances our lives so much."
- John Widick
President of the Arab Cultural Association
