Event Details:

Hailed as a cradle of human civilization, the Mediterranean Sea connects as well as separates different countries surrounding it, including Spain, Italy, Greece, France, Turkey, Egypt, Morocco, etc. Given such geographical uniqueness, the Mediterranean region is home to diverse cultures which share similarities yet retain their distinctiveness.

The Office of Student Affairs is organizing its first Mediterranean Festival from September to October on campus, presenting an eclectic mix of cultures that are fabulously Mediterranean.

✴️ Cultural Booths ✴️
The students from the Mediterranean countries - Italy, France, Spain, Turkey, Egypt and Morocco will manage cultural booths to showcase their cultures. Besides face-to-face interaction with these students, you can get a bite of their picks of regional snacks and learn their languages! Also, those who visit all the booths can enter a lucky draw. Try your luck!
