FAYETTE, Iowa (March 4, 2020) – With students representing over 20 countries, Upper Iowa University’s (UIU) Center for International Education and International Student Association will host a “Colors of the World” International Culture Night celebration Saturday, March 28, at Fayette Campus. The festivities begin with an International Market at 3 p.m., followed by a dinner show at 6 p.m.

New to UIU’s annual International Culture Night celebration, the International Market provides a platform for student entrepreneurs and local business owners to gain a wider demographic of prospective customers. Located on the first floor of the UIU Student Center, the market will remain open until 6 p.m.

Doors open to the International Culture Night Dinner at 5:30 p.m. in the Student Center ballrooms. In addition to the family-style international cuisine, guests will witness firsthand a small part of UIU’s uniquely diverse campus. Scheduled activities include a fashion show, a Japanese-inspired game show, music and dancing.

General admission to the dinner is $10, and $5 for UIU students and children ages 12 and under. UIU students may RSVP, with a meal swipe prior to March 28. In addition to helping cover event expenses, proceeds benefit philanthropic support for UNICEF and UIU.
