International students add cultural — and culinary — variety to the Winona campus. Last Friday, students at the De La Salle Language Institute and the Center for International Students sponsored the “Taste of Saudi Arabia” for the campus community. The event provided a wonderful opportunity for our students, faculty and staff to broaden their global and multicultural perspective. Approximately 100 SMU community members enjoyed Arabic food, music, dancing and cultural displays presented by SMU students from Saudi Arabia with the assistance of DLI and Center staff. The event was the inspiration of SMU’s international student body, wanting to support the rebuilding efforts of the Winona Islamic Center which was recently destroyed by fire. “Taste of Saudi Arabia” raised $700 for the rebuilding fund.
