Intrigued by faraway lands? Passionate about foreign languages and cultures? During International Week, students and faculty alike signed up for passports, enjoyed a nice cup of tea from Japan (or Brazil, India, or myriad other nations), and tasted tea-time treats from around the globe.
International Education Week, a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education, promotes programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and that attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States.
In celebration of this exchange of language and culture, CHASS teamed up with the Office of International Affairs for two events in Caldwell Lounge. On Tuesday, November 15, students, faculty, and staff lined up to complete paperwork and take photographs for passports as part of the eighth annual Passport Fair. Then on Thursday, November 17, they all lined up again—this time, to sample teas, coffees, and sweets from around the world in the International Tea and Coffee event.
Check out the photos from these events on our Facebook album.
