(April 11, 2013) -- Need a bit of a study break? Want to take a worldwide trip? There will be an international party waiting for you from 1 to 5 p.m., Thursday, April 11 on the University Center Paseo on the UTSA Main Campus. Food, fun and entertainment will be available for students, faculty and staff.

"We want to let everyone experience a bit of the international culture that we have here at UTSA," said Beatriz Frias, president of the UTSA Global Business Club. "The International Fall Fest during International Education Week was so successful; we wanted to expand it to the spring."

Performers from Taiwan, Japan, Mexico, Brazil and India will participate, and several international student organizations will have booths with food, crafts and information available. The Institute of Texan Cultures also will have a booth, where they will display several cultural artifacts from the institution.

There also will be several raffles throughout the event. Food booths will include French cream puffs, China rice cakes and churros, first-come, first-served.

The Global Business Club, College of Business International Programs and the UTSA Office of International Programs will sponsor the event, which is free and open to the public.
