Davidson County Community College to host International Night

THOMASVILLE — Davidson County Community College will bring the sights and sounds of more than 25 countries under one roof for its 12th  International Night on March 30. The event will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Brinkley Gymnasium on the Davidson Campus. Doors open at 5:15 p.m. The public is invited to attend.

International Night showcases the many ways students experience a global education at DCCC. It has also become a fun campus tradition, engaging participants in a deeper exploration of cultures different from their own.

The event will feature food trucks, activities, live entertainment and displays representing various countries. Attendees can expect to taste cuisine from around the globe, watch performances by belly dancers, a Korean pop band, the Winston Salem Prep Choir and many other international performers, see displays of authentic artifacts and traditional dress and even hear a variety of languages spoken.

A family-friendly affair, the event will offer a special children’s area. Participants will also be able to “visit” each country and earn stamps for their passport.

Lexington Mayor Newell Clark will open the festivities with a welcome. He and co-host of the Morning Show on WBFJ, Verne Hill, and Interim Vice President of Academic Affairs at DCCC, Margaret Annunziata, will judge the country displays and award prizes for best visual, best food, best dress and best overall.

DCCC’s International Education Committee, whose mission is to help prepare DCCC students to be successful as global citizens, sponsors International Night. The event is a fundraiser that will benefit study abroad scholarships for DCCC students.

Advance tickets are $3 each for all ages and are available at the information desk located in the Brooks Student Center on the Davidson Campus, from DCCC Scholars of Global Distinction, or online at DavidsonCCC.edu/InternationalNight. At the door, tickets will be $5 for ages 12 and up, $3 for ages 6-11 and free for ages 5 and under.
