UNOH plans International Day

Staff report

LIMA — The University of Northwestern Ohio will host the 17th annual International Day, Nov. 17, in the UNOH Event Center from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

This event is free and open to the public. The theme is “Bringing the World to Lima.”

The event coincides with International Education Week. This is a joint initiative by the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Education to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn and exchange experiences in the United States.

Professors Tony Briceno, Bonnie Leonhardt and Danielle McClure will be working with students classes in the colleges of Business, Health Professions, and Occupational Professions. Students in these classes will present displays about Colombia, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom, Zimbabwe and other countries. Each country’s display will provide different perspectives of culture depending on the focus of each course. Booths may include historical items, arts and crafts, music, currency, trade information, laws that affect trade and business and unique cuisine.

This year, UNOH has been home to 131 students from more than 30 different countries. Their participation in the event, along with domestic students, creates a diverse living and learning environment at UNOH.
