Hilbert to Host International Students Celebration

Hilbert will host a celebration of its international students and their cultures Tuesday afternoon in Franciscan Hall.

The event, which runs from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., will include salsa dancing, polish food and henna art.

Kera Bush-Turner, Hilbert’s international student coordinator, said she hopes the event will boost the visibility of international students on campus and teach students about one another’s traditions.

“Our goal for this event is to have the entire Hilbert community learn more about our international diversity and how they can leave their mark on the world,” Bush-Turner said.

The scheduled events are:

  • Salsa dancing with award-winning dance teacher Fanny Olaya, 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Tabling by international students, 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Henna art from Lori Henna Studio, 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Polish Cuisine from the Wanderer Hut food truck, 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
