Multicultural Events Coming Up in April

Several events planned to encourage and celebrate cultural awareness


The Multicultural and International Offices have several events planned for April to help students learn more about different cultures and promote cultural awareness.

On April 1, the campus is invited to the Taste of the World luncheon. The event will take place in Moody 108 from 12 to 2 p.m. The luncheon will feature samples of food made by international students who bring traditional food from their home countries. More than a dozen countries will be represented including Malaysia, China, the Philippines, Mexico, Rwanda, Thailand, Pakistan, and Japan. The first Taste of the World event was held in the fall and was very popular with students, faculty, and staff.

On April 9th, students will take a trip to the Holocaust Museum in Dallas ( Those interested in attending can obtain sign-up information from Multicultural Office Coordinator Yessinia Juarez. Her office is located in Moody 217 along with that of Carolle Ranaivoarivelo, International Student Coordinator.

On April 12th, the Multicultural and International Offices have partnered with the Baptist Student Ministries and Abilene Christian University to host the International Night of Worship starting at 6:30. The event will take place on Anderson Lawn.

“It’s important that we grasp different cultures, not just our own,” said Juarez, in describing the purpose of the events.

Juarez said she is busy planning events for the upcoming school year. In particular, she is looking for speakers for Hispanic Heritage Month in September.
