International Flair comes to UCEC
Information about the countries was displayed on aesthetically pleasing posters which captivated viewers. The content of the informational posters ranged from history to famous celebrities-- there was surely something to interest everyone. The stations had an activity to introduce attendees to the customs or pastimes of foreign places. Chinese jump rope was a particularly big hit, as well as the make-a-Mexican-flower station. We also had the first Grand Prize Winner, Tessa Halpin, who received a bag of goodies from around the world. This novel event was an enlightening experience for everyone involved and we are all looking forward to the International Festival becoming a regular UCEC tradition. Photos of the event can be viewed on the UCEC Facebook page; you may just see yourself!
