Cranwell International Center celebrates Autumn Traditions Around the World

Cranwell International Center’s fall celebration and chili dinner will take place from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 24, in Commonwealth Ballroom at Squires Student Center. This year’s theme is Autumn Traditions Around the World.

International students will have the opportunity to meet community members and other students, as traditional Appalachian music is performed and a delicious chili dinner is served. The event is free to international students, and no sign-up is necessary; however, a Hokie Passport is required to attend.

To incorporate the university’s motto, Ut Prosim (That I May Serve), those in attendance will have the option to help assemble blankets for Project Linus, a charity dedicated to providing homemade blankets for children in need.

Community members interested in volunteering are needed to serve chili, provide desserts, or simply form relationships with international students.

For more information or to volunteer, contact Cranwell International Center at Harper Hall at 540-231-6527.
