SUNY Plattsburgh Diversity Celebrated at Night of Nations
The annual celebration of SUNY Plattsburgh’s international community, Night of Nations, will be held Saturday, Nov. 19, beginning at 7 p.m. in E. Glenn Giltz Auditorium, Hawkins Hall.
An evening of performance that features traditional and contemporary cross-cultural music, dance, fashion and more, Night of Nations began as an open-mike event in the fall of 2005. Outgrowing the Warren Ballrooms, it has evolved into a stage performance that attracts some 1,000 audience members annually. This year’s night will feature nearly a dozen performances.
“Night of Nations has grown over the past five years to become the most exciting, as well as important, event for furthering international diversity awareness and cultural understanding,” said Kate Friedrich, international admissions intern with International Student Services.
“It gives participants access to a cultural showcase of the more than 70 countries represented at SUNY Plattsburgh,” said Jaafar El Tassa, graduate assistant in International Student Services.
The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call International Student Services at 518-564-3287.
