Greetings BCOMers, or should I say Hola? Shalom, Bonjour, Buonguiorno!
SGA is hosting an International pot luck on February 15th from 6-8pm open to all students, staff, and family members. We LOVE diversity at BCOM, so we can’t wait to see a wide range of cultural dishes at the event. If you’re not sure which dish to bring, think back to what your family’s favorite dish was growing up. Did your mom make you delicious baba ghanoush? Does your pops have the best recipe for Motsunabe? Or perhaps a good ole’ green bean casserole always reminds you of home. Whatever you grew up eating, we want to see it! If you can’t make a dish, please feel free to stop by anyway for good food and great company!
- If you are interested in sharing the foodie-love, submit your recipe via email to firstname.lastname@example.org to be featured in the first ever Burrell College Melting Pot Cookbook (photos of both food and family are welcome as submissions as well). The cookbook will be available for (free) download the day after the event.
- We are also accepting music submissions for our International Night playlist, so send us your favorite songs or artists from back home (please no profanity IN ANY LANGUAGE).
- Lastly, if you have traditional garb from back home, we welcome you to wear it loud and proud to the event. From hijabs to cowboy boots, kilts to yukatas, we hope to see a little piece of all of the beautiful cultures that are represented in the BCOM student and staff population.
- If you plan on attending, please RSVP via the following google doc: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1r6mkUqyhDE62A-5JMos2_2MXD6F7McWaeZY01O-eF-0/edit?usp=sharing
If there is one thing our nation needs right now, it is to unite together, despite our differences in political opinions, genders, languages, preferences, and backgrounds. After all, “…if we cannot now end our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity.” -JFK
We hope to see you there! Best,
Social Chair, SGA
