International Day at PIU

SAMSUNG            Last Monday the PIU Student Council sponsored an International Day. The idea was that each different cultural group would explain the unique aspects of their home SAMSUNG            culture, showcase the art, dance, music and/or, of course food, of their home “island.” The purposes were to understand each other a bit better and celebrate the differences within the unity of the PIU family. It was fun to see how talented the new students are. It was an enjoyable evening that began a very busy week. Here are several pictures of the event.
