One need not leave campus to experience St. Olaf's penchant for international studies. While many students are abroad this semester, those left on campus can sample the fruits of study abroad during International Night March 13, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. in Urness Recital Hall.

A reception will follow in the King's room, located in Buntrock Commons. Charges of five dollars for students and 10 dollars for non-students cover both the performances and food, all of which is prepared by international students.

The International Night festivities involve contributions from both the International Student Organization and the Diversity Celebrations Committee. They formed an inter-organizational committee to plan the event..

International Night has been celebrated at St. Olaf for 38 years, but this year, for the first time, all proceeds will be donated to charity.

"It was Angela Goehring's idea to make the event a benefit," said Philana Roberts, `04, a member of the Planning Committee. Goehring is the advisor for international student services.

A girls' school in Nepal affiliated with the Heifer Project will receive the proceeds from this year. "If it works out we will probably do it as a benefit in the future," Roberts `04 said.

International Night will feature skits, ethnic dance performances and songs. In addition, Associate Biology Professor Eric Cole, will show-off his Tai-Chi moves. Look for tables outside Stav Hall to purchase tickets for the event.
