Culture Through Coffee
November 21, 2012-Lock Haven University’s Institute for International Studies presents its annual series called “Culture Through Coffee.” Each semester the “Culture Through Coffee” series, which is held at Avenue 209 Coffee House, gives international students an opportunity to share information, customs and food with the local community; each part in the series includes a destination. So far this semester, destinations have included China, Mexico, and Italy.
“Every destination has had something different to offer, a traditional Chinese concerto played by Chinese student, Lingjing Wang; sugar skull decorating with exchange student Yessica Sanchez to celebrate El Día de los Muertos; and homemade lasagna made by Italian exchange student Mario Fanari,” says Rosana Campbell, Director of the Institute for International Studies.
A play on the name for the upcoming destination, “Culture Through Tea” will feature England. At the last Culture Through Coffee event, Callum Stewart, an exchange student from Liverpool Hope University, expressed interest in talking about his home country and university. “There is a lot of really interesting culture in Liverpool, we could call it Culture Through Tea,” Stewart said. With the help of Avenue 209, the Institute for International Studies scheduled the extra event.
“Culture Through Tea” will be held Wednesday, December 5, 2012 at 7 p.m. The night will feature Callum Stewart talking about Liverpool, tea and biscuits and, of course, Beatles music. This event is free and open to the public; all ages are welcome to attend.
