St. Thomas University international students’ association’s chair Maite Cristina says this year’s multicultural fair will be different from last year’s.
The fair is on Feb. 25 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Student Union Building.
“The multicultural fair’s gonna be a little bit later so it’s past dinner time. So people are just going to come for a show. They’re still going to get a couple finger foods and stuff, so they can enjoy the traditional food.
“It’s not going to be like previous years where they come expecting a meal or they get a meal.”
The STUISA board this year is made up of much younger students, all first and second years. This, says Cristina, has made the difference.
“I think that younger minds are more creative. And they’re more into it. They have more time. They get more excited about things.”
They have been working closely with the University of New Brunswick’s African student union and various other international groups in high schools and in the community all year.
As in past years, the multicultural fair will include a fashion show and a talent show.
“I hope that this year’s fair [is] gonna be just as good or better [than last year’s] for sure.”
Tickets are $8 for students and will be going on sale near Valentine’s Day.
