Emmanuel Takes a Bite Into Culture

On Wednesday, September 28 at 6PM students lined up for the Taste of Cultures event that was held for the third year in a row in the Emmanuel College auditorium.

The event is put in place for students to be introduced to foods from the multiple cultures that are seen around the Emmanuel Campus.

The meals were provided by clubs at Emmanuel such as: Armenian Club, Asian Student Association, H.U.E.L.L.A.S, Black Student Union, and Greek Club.

“I think Taste of Cultures is the best event on campus, especially early on to really get to know the other multi-cultural clubs and share what we all love the most together. It’s all about community and sharing a meal and I think that’s really special,” said Co-President of H.U.E.L.L.A.S. Natalie Rivas.

The food provided included different kinds of rices, chicken dishes, hummus and pita options, Vietnamese egg rolls, and a Greek dessert called Baklava.

H.U.E.L.L.A.S. has been an active participant in cultural events such as Taste of Culture. This year the club brought Dominican dishes.

“We will be having a general members meeting next week on October 5. H.U.E.L.L.A.S. hosts an event called Café con Leche and we have talks about different things that are going around the world. Our biggest event, Latin Explosion, will end Spanish Heritage Month,” said member Yelena Rodriguez.
