International education hosts celebration

UGA’s Office of International Education will host its third annual International Education Week celebration Nov. 14 from 6-9 p.m. in Georgia Hall of the Tate Student Center. Tickets can be purchased in advance at the Tate Student Center box office or the night of the celebration.

Tickets are $5 for UGA students and $8 for adults and children 13 and older. Tickets for children ages 6-12 are $3, and children younger than 6 will be admitted free.

Individuals who donate a prepared international/ethnic food dish that feeds at least eight people will receive $2 off the admission price.

As in the past, the event will include cuisine from around the world, international music and dance, a silent auction and the “World of Pictures” photo contest.

For the first time, the IEW celebration will include a sale of handcrafted gifts and home décor through the fair trade organization Ten Thousand Villages, which has worked for more than 59 years with talented artisans around the world to provide vital, fair income in exchange for beautiful, handcrafted items.

The sale also will be held Nov. 15 and 17 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Plaza of the Tate Student Center. Cash or checks will be accepted for all purchases made through the sale or the silent auction.

International Education Week is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education.
