35th International Banquet & Show

International Banquet & Show

The Association of International Students at Missouri State extends a special invitation to all area residents to its 36th Annual International Banquet and Show: Colors of the World. This event is a multicultural event that promotes the Public Affairs mission of Missouri State University.

The event will be held on Saturday, November 15th, 2014 from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm in the Plaster Student Union Ballroom and Theater on the Missouri State campus (901 S. National Ave. Springfield, MO 65897). Dozens of countries will be represented in the unique event, whose proceeds benefit the Association of International Students Scholarship Fund.

To start the evening, a buffet of exotic foods prepared by students (under the supervision of advisors and catering staff) will be offered. It will feature both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes from around the globe. Coffee and other drinks will also be served.

After the banquet, the traditional cultural entertainment portion of the evening moves to the PSU Theatre. The show will include different dance routines, musical offerings, skits and other types of performances from all parts of the world: Asia, Africa, Latin America, South America, Europe, and North America. A Fashion show will feature traditional clothes from different countries. It is a must-see cultural learning opportunity that is sure to open your eyes, and hearts, to other cultures.
