TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - On Friday, April 4, 2014, the Florida A&M University (FAMU) Department of Continuing Education and Student Health Services will host the inaugural 'International Food and Cultural Awareness Festival'. It will run from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the FAMU Hansel Tookes Student Recreation Center.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will include an international cuisine experience with dishes from an array of countries, as well as music, poetry, ...dance and fashion representing various cultures.
“The purpose of the festival is to create a platform to showcase all of the cultures represented at FAMU," said Gei-Nam Lim, assistant director of the Student Recreation Center. “We feel this is a good start towards getting the FAMU community more involved in cultural awareness and cultural activities, and hope that the festival will be the icebreaker that leads to the facilitation of more international events [on campus]."

Dear International Education Colleagues:

All this week, First Lady Michelle Obama is in China -- focusing on the power and importance of education, both in her own life and in the lives of young people across the world.

She spoke at Peking University to students from both sides of the Pacific Ocean, and highlighted the tremendous value that studying abroad could offer:

...

"Studying abroad isn’t just a fun way to spend a semester; it is quickly becoming the key to success in our global economy. Because getting ahead in today’s workplaces isn’t just about getting good grades or test scores in school, which are important. It’s also about having real experience with the world beyond your borders -- experience with languages, cultures and societies very different from your own."

Please follow the First Lady's travel journal and watch her presentation at Peking University:

There’s a remarkable picture that’s been making the rounds on the web recently, and it caught our eye. You may have seen the shot: it’s of a group of medical st...udents and they’re all women.

One’s from Japan, one’s from India, and the third from Syria. They’re all wearing traditional clothes from their home countries. Nothing too remarkable in that, you might say. Until you see the date: 1885. http://ow.ly/mV3HD
