TCC Celebrates International Education Week

Eighty countries were represented at Tallahassee Community College Thursday.

It was "Bringing the World to TCC," an event celebrating International Education Week.

Students and guests were able to visit booths for the more than 80 countries represented in TCC's student population.

It allowed them to learn about different cultures and sample native foods.

Sylvie Michel is a TCC student from Haiti. She says she enjoyed teaching others about her country, and learning about others. She says, "I think it's very amazing to have the opportunity for students to just have a taste of the culture and not have to travel miles away just to see it. So, I think it's a brilliant opportunity for everyone here."

The week is closed out by the Asian Fair tomorrow (Friday, 11-16) from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at TCC's intramural fields.

FSU and Valdosta State are also celebrating International Education Week.
