Students Throw International Fête

Published: Apr 16, 2008
In the tradition of carnival, The University of Tampa’s International Fête on Friday, April 25, will offer students an opportunity to enjoy globally inspired food, music, dancing, prizes and giveaways.

The party will begin as the sun sets on the intramural field, around 7 p.m. Participants will wear carnival masks and glow sticks will help guide them through a selection of global appetizers. Entertainment will range from Kumba dancers to Trinidadian Tassa drummers, with a line-up of professional and student performers. UT students are encouraged to wear traditional outfits that reflect their nationality and/or heritage.

The International Fête is sponsored by Student Government and the International Programs Office with the support of the Arab Student Association, Caribbean Student Association, Diversity Fellowship, Greek American Society, HOLA, Indian Cultural Association, International Student Organization, Kapriza, Muslim Student Association, Sodexho, Team Chaos, UT Diplomats and the Vaughn Center Association.
