The Festival of Nations is a major ELI event that showcases our students’ cultures, fashion and talent.

Festival of Nations 2017The event will feature three special activities:

  • Culture fair: Meet students from around the world and learn about their home countries and cultures. Students will display clothing, decorations, and other artifacts that represent their culture. In addition, students will often offer to write visitors’ names in the language of their country (e.g., simplified Chinese, Arabic, etc.), play some music from their home country, and offer small treats and candies that are typical in their homeland.
  • Talent show: Enjoy performances from students across the UD community. Performances often include traditional dance from our students’ countries, music and singing, and even martial arts displays.
