Tastes and talents from around world featured in annual Goshen College International Coffeehouse March 10

GOSHEN, Ind. – There are few opportunities to experience the tastes and traditions of countries and cultures around the world in a single evening. But the International Student Club at Goshen College will offer a lively journey around the globe on Saturday, March 10.

The annual International Student Club Coffeehouse will begin at 5 p.m. with an international buffet in the College Mennonite Church Fellowship Hall, followed by a student variety show at 7 p.m. in Sauder Concert Hall.

The international feast will include tasty and exotic dishes from around the world served on a buffet, including Dominican, African American, Chinese, Indian, Himalayan, Belizean, Ethiopian, Kenyan, German and Thai foods. The performances in the show will include dances, poems and music from around the world. More than 100 Goshen College international students participate in putting this event together, and this is the first year the performance will be in Sauder Concert Hall.

The profits this year will be donated toward an international student with financial need for their tuition, International Student Club activities and to an international humanitarian project.

Tickets for adults cost $17 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 for the dinner are nearly sold out, but there are still plenty available for the show, which are available at the Goshen College Welcome Center by calling (574) 535-7566.
