On Nov. 19, Lyon international students shared a taste of home with their classmates for International Education Week.
“I think this is an awesome event. Everyone can come out and eat dishes from all over the world… It’s amazing for me not only to share but also to try everyone else's food,” said senior Devon Browne, of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.
International Education Week is a joint effort between the U.S. State Department and the U.S. Department of Education to promote international exchange.
“Colleges and universities all over the world are celebrating,” said International Student Advisor Joni Bube.
Student dishes included everything from English tea time snacks, like Victoria Sponge, to dishes reserved for national celebrations, like Pastel De Choclo.
