LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – This year’s International Dinner and Show calls for red carpet attire as EOU celebrates the 27th annual event with “The Oscars” as the theme.
The black-tie event begins Saturday with dinner at 5:30 p.m. in the Gilbert Center adjacent to Ackerman Hall. Guests have the opportunity to sample global cuisine from around the world, all prepared and served by members of EOU’s International Student Association (ISA).
After dinner the festivities move to McKenzie Theatre in Loso Hall with performances beginning at 7 p.m. Music and dance productions, an international fashion exposition and other entertainment is on the program this year.
Truc Nguyen, of Vietnam, is among those anticipating the big show. The current ISA treasurer and senior chemistry major believes there is a lot to gain from being involved with the association and its events.
“I want to have a leadership experience working with people from other cultures, and what better way than to work with international students who all come from different backgrounds,” she said. “It is very fulfilling for me and I have enjoyed it so much.”
