Public Invited to 5th Annual Motlow International Festival
November 9, 2011
November is International Month at Motlow College and the Moore County campus is busy preparing for its fifth annual International Festival. The festival will take place November 16,
10 a.m. to 1 p.m., in the Marcum Technology Center. The public is invited and there is no admission charge.
With students from more than 30 countries, college departments are celebrating Motlow's diversity by showcasing different countries. Jeannie Brown, coordinator of international education at Motlow said, "This year's festival will be our biggest and best ever! We will have 27 different booths, which is more than we've ever had. Departments and classes at Motlow have their doors and hallways decorated and ready for the celebration. When all of those displays come together on the day of the festival it will be amazing."
Mr. D.K. Wu from the ChinaNOW Institute of International Education in Shanghai, China will be on campus to speak to students in the classroom, participate in the festival and offer scholarships to Motlow students for China summer programs. Current Motlow students or those recently graduated and attending a university are eligible to apply for two different programs offered in the 2012 summer session.
Entertainment for the event will include music from the band, Slip Jig, of Huntsville, Ala. They will perform traditional music of Ireland, Scotland, and other Celtic lands during the festival and have a special concert that evening for the public. The free concert will be held in Powers Auditorium of Eoff Hall at 7 p.m.
The Study Abroad program at Motlow, offered through the Tennessee Consortium of International Studies (TNCIS), will have information available for students to learn more about opportunities and scholarships available. There are currently available courses of study in 18 different countries.
