CU Around The World

by Will Duncan, Public Relations Writer

Cedarville University’s international student services, along with the office of intercultural leadership and the school of pharmacy, will host Cedarville’s second annual world fair on Monday, April 13. The event will be held in the Center for Biblical and Theological Studies. 

More than 20 countries and cultures will be represented at the world fair. Each table will include a unique variety of art, crafts, clothing and food specific to that country. Some countries will provide sweet treats, while others will give samples of main courses like Jamaican jerk chicken. A few tables will be hosting interactive art activities, henna tattoos and live music.  

This year, for the first time, the world fair will offer camel rides outside the Dixon Ministry Center for individuals attending the event. The camel rides are free of charge and open to everyone. 

“We are hosting this world fair to bring awareness and appreciation to all of the different cultures on campus,” said Brenda Reid, coordinator of international student services. “It is a great opportunity to adapt the heavenly perspective of ‘every tribe, every tongue, every nation’ on campus.”

This event is free to attend and will take place from 6-8 p.m.
