Office of International Education Sponsors a Luau Event

imageGet ready for a taste of Hawaii at Ferris State University’s “Bring A Little, Taste A Little Luau-Themed Dinner” set for Wednesday, Feb. 16, and hosted by the Office of International Education.

The luau-themed dinner takes place in FLITE 438 at 6 p.m. The OIE luau is open to the public and attendees are welcome to bring and share a dish. The theme of this international student-centered event has returned inside the U.S. borders and features a Hawaiian twist.

“Usually our events are focused on other countries, but this time we put a spin on it and made it more American, hence the luau,” said Shana Beisiegel, administrative assistant in OIE.

Going along with a decorative theme of bright colors, Hawaiian features and food, there will be a Hawaiian outfit competition. The evening also features a back-bending limbo competition for anyone up to the challenge.

Beisiegel emphasized that international events are another way to share the cultures of Ferris’ international students and allow interaction amongst students in a more casual setting.

The event is sponsored by Ferris’ Office of International Education, directed by Piram Prakasam.
