Annual talent show highlights International Ed Week
Sunday, November 15, 2009

The International Education Office will host its third annual International Talent Show on Wed., Nov. 18 from 7 to 10 p.m. in the Campus Grind. The event is part of International Education Week, Nov. 16-19.

The Talent Show will consist of a dozen 15-minute, internationally-related performances, where participants will perform their piece as well as explain the origin, technique and composer/writer of it. The office is not only looking for attendees but performers as well. If you are interested in participating, please stop by the International Education Office, 7 LoGrasso Hall or call 673-3451.
