Students will be “Traveling Around the World”

Students will be able to experience traveling the globe without leaving Huntington.

Marshall University’s Commons Hall Council will host the “Traveling Around the World” program from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. Friday outside of Marshall Commons.

Commons Hall Council vice president Trina Rogers said the council wanted to plan a program all students on campus could get involved in.

“We decided instead of just doing a simple community-wide program, that we wanted to reach out to those involved in the INTO program and not just the ones who live in commons,” Rogers said. “It’s a way to bring people of different cultures together and what better way to do that than through the different types of food many enjoy each and every day.”

Tables will be set up for the different sponsors, including El Ranchito, La Famiglia and Stewart’s Hot Dogs. These sponsors will provide food for students to sample.

There will also be cornhole, music and a hot dog eating contest.

Rogers said the council hopes students will have fun while learning about other cultures.

“We hope that people learn that diversity is what makes us all unique in our own way and our many different cultures are what bring us together,” Rogers said.

“Traveling Around the World” is free for all Marshall University students.
