GOSHEN, Ind. – There are few opportunities to experience the tastes and traditions of countries and cultures around the world in the same evening. But the International Student Club at Goshen College offers a lively journey around the globe on Saturday, Jan. 28.

The annual International Student Club Coffeehouse begins at 5 p.m. with an international buffet in the College Mennonite Church Fellowship Hall and is followed by an international student variety show at 7 p.m. in Umble Center.

The international feast will include excellent and exotic dishes from around the world served on a buffet. The performances in the show will include dances, poems and music from around the world.

The profits this year will be donated towards Pakistani earthquake relief, a needy international student for their tuition and club activities.

Tickets for adults cost $16 for the dinner and the show, and $10 for the show only. Tickets for kids under 12 are $11 for the dinner and show, and $6 for the show only. Tickets are available in the Goshen College Welcome Center by calling (574) 535-7566.
