International Students Association to host international dinner Saturday

The International Students Association will host the 36th Annual International Dinner at 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25, in the Student Union Auditorium.

The dinner features a meal with culturally diverse tastes and a show presented by groups of UT students. The theme for this year’s dinner is “On a Starry Night.”

“We are representing each student as a single star,” said Zain Ahmad, president of the International Students Association. “No matter where they are from, they’ll shine.”

For dinner, authentic food from myriad local restaurants, including tastes from Jamaican, Chinese and Indian restaurants, will be served. The students will present their cultural talents before and after the meal.

“We have 12 performances scheduled, and there are performers associated with places all over the world. We have a magician from Iraq and dancers from India,” Ahmad said.

The night will conclude with a fashion show spotlighting clothing from around the world. About 40 students will perform at the dinner, and more than 30 will participate in the fashion show.

“It’s important because it gives international students a chance to represent their culture and talent,” Ahmad said. “The International Students Association is the only organization on campus that represents more than 1,800 international students. Most of the volunteers for the dinner are international students as well.”

Tickets are $8 for students and $10 for non-students. Children 4 and younger will receive free admission. Tickets will be available at the door and are on sale at Rocket Copy in the Student Union on the UT Main Campus.
