Highline's international students aim to take the campus community "Around the World in a Day" during the annual GlobalFest celebration in the Student Union this Saturday night.
Organized by the International Leadership Student Council, the event will feature cultural booths and ethnic cuisine, as well as cultural performances. This is a chance to explore different culture and traditions from Highline foreign national students, organizers say.
The event will take place on May 12 and runs from 5:30 to around 9 p.m in the Student Union. Admission is free and everybody is welcomed to come attend.
