Fontbonne University might seem like a small place, but there are more than 27 countries represented in the student body! However, it may be difficult to realize this because we are scattered along the different majors and programs that Fontbonne offers.
The International Bazaar on the 18th of November was the perfect event to showcase the diversity from international students that have made Fontbonne their home.
Thailand, Vietnam, China, Japan, Congo, Chile, Argentina, Ecuador, Brazil, Bangladesh, United States and Saudi Arabia each country with their own table and the best part: they all had food to share!
The environment was hectic but a lot of fun, people were going from table to table getting to know students and trying out the different dishes. It was hard to try out all the food! But given that most of the tables run out of their dishes I would say that they were a success.
The best part of the afternoon was when the Brazilian band started playing and two traditional Brazilian dancers came out in full costume dancing! It was the perfect ending for an event that was filled with fun, sharing and great food.
If you missed the International Bazaar this year, then mark it in your calendar for next year! It is an amazing event that will broaden your knowledge about all the other cultures that are part of Fontbonne.
