VALDOSTA , Ga. -- Valdosta State University’s Society for International Students will host its 37th Annual International Dinner, Share More: Share Culture, Diversity and Friendship, at 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 20, in the Student Union Ballrooms.

The dinner will feature dishes from each of the four Global Regions: The Americas, Asia, Africa and Europe. Dishes are prepared by VSU students with the help of VSU Dining staff and served to over 300 guests.

“This night gives our local community a chance to sample flavors of international culture for the eyes, ears and pallet,” said Lauren Braun, international student coordinator. “It will certainly be a memorable event for all who attend.”

During the dinner, students will entertain guests with traditional and modern songs, performances, dances, music and skits. Among the performances, there will be an international fashion show where students will display traditional attire from their home countries.

The International Dinner began 36 years ago as a way for VSU's international students to share part of their culture with the Valdosta community. Currently there are over 270 international students from over 60 different countries attending VSU.

Advanced tickets are now on sale in the Center for International Programs office. Non-VSU guest tickets will be $20. VSU student tickets will be $10 with a student ID and children five and under are free. If available, tickets will be sold at the door for an adjusted price of $25 per ticket.
