The University of Iowa

World Cultures to be Featured at Global Village Open House Oct. 16

October 12th, 2011

The Global Village, a University of Iowa living and learning community, will host an open house from 5 to 7 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 16, on the eighth floor of Mayflower Residence Hall, located east of the Iowa River on Dubuque Street in Iowa City.

The event calls for members of the community to create cultural displays from various countries and regions, complete with food, music, games, and artifacts from that particular area. UI students and members of the public are encouraged to attend to sample free food made from traditional ethnic recipes and to learn more about the diverse cultures and backgrounds of Global Village members.

The Global Village is made up of 40 U.S. and international students of all majors, language abilities, international interests, ages, and experiences. Global Village cross-cultural programs are coordinated by University Housing and UI International Programs.
