Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
It is a family friendly event, so there are no age restrictions. However, VSU students must have their VSU ID's present when they check-in, and a school ID for any one holding a 17 and under ticket (especially if you do not look like you're under 13!).
What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Attendees can use the parking spaces at the Oak Street Parking Lot
How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Message us on our Facebook page
Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?
Tickets can be transferred to another person, given that they are eligible for the same rate.
Ex. VSU student tickets can only be transferred to another VSU student. The new student will have to provide their VSU ID# to ensure that they are eligible for the VSU student rate.
Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?
Aside from students receiving the VSU student rate, it is fine if the name does not match.
Only 11 more days until the 42nd International Dinner!!
Have you purchased your tickets? You can do so by purchasing them online or by stoping by the Center of International Programs at VSU!
Tickets are only $10 for students and $20 for community/staff....
Don’t forget to invite your friends and family!
Colombian salsa originated in the city of Cali, Colombia (which is why the style is also referred to as “Cali-style salsa”), which calls itself the “World Capital of Salsa”.
Every year our international students prepare something special for the annual dinner. This year we decided to give you a preview of some of the many cultures that exist in our VSU community. "Oi Pessoal! from Brazil."

A scavenger hunt is a party game in which the organizers prepare a list defining specific items. In this case, you will be looking for the flags of different countries, which the participants seek to gather or complete all items on the list. The participants will work in small teams. The goal is to be the first to complete the list or to complete the most items on the list.
Sign-up for the hunt will be done at the first stop, the Center for International Programs (204 Georgia Avenue; white house next to the health center.)
Good morning everyone!
We have a couple of announcements regarding some of the events we are having this week. You are not going to want to miss any of them!
Are you looking for something fun to do this week?! ...
Then come have fun with the Society on Thursday, Nov 9, from 2:30pm to 4:30pm!
We are hosting, with the Department of Diversity and Inclusion, a Cultural Scavenger Hunt. Participants are going to be given a list with different hints, that are going to lead to different flags that will be spread out through main campus.
The person who finishes first or finishes the majority of the items on the list wins! And even receives a prize!
On Nov 9, we are also collaborating with another organization at a dance show. It is called Dance for the Culture, and it will be at the Student Union Ballrooms from 7pm to 9pm. During this event, different groups are going to be performing traditional dances, and some of Japanese students and one of our Colombian students are going to be performing. So come on out that night to help us support them!
Snacks and drinks are going to be provided!
On Nov 10, we are hosting the cultural hour, where students from Colombia and Honduras are going to be speaking about their cultures and provide the audience with a typical dish from their home countries. It will be at the CIP classroom from 2pm to 3:30pm.
