Multi-Culture Day Comes to Seton Hall  

Culture DayStudents are invited to attend the first annual Multi-Culture Day at Seton Hall on April 20th, presented by the Languages, Literatures and Cultures Department. The days festivities are being held in conjunction with the 21st annual Petersheim Academic Exposition. Events throughout the day will highlight the languages and cultures taught at Seton Hall and open eyes towards the opportunities and benefits of studying a foreign language.

The Multi-Culture Day will offer details about courses for students to major or minor in a language and hear about different opportunities through the LLC department. In addition, Summer Study Abroad Programs will be discussed in detail, where students will receive information on how they can take their studies to other countries.

The day will begin with a lecture on the founding of Rome by Prof. Michael Mascio and screenings of student videos of the Japanese program's Digital Storytelling Project. The Arabic, German, French and Spanish programs will be presenting poetry readings and other activities. In the evening, the Chinese program will present its Annual Speech Contest and the Russian program will hold an "Academic Olympiad."

Many of the events will take place in Fahy Hall at the Language Resource Center. Included in this, is an international food tasting that will go throughout the day. Those in attendance can take a trip around the world through the items served.

The Director of the Language Resource Center, Michael Stone, is playing a large part in putting this event on for the first time. He hopes the event can, "Illustrate the value both in terms of personal development and in terms of career in studying another language and culture and promote the idea to study the idea to study other cultures right here on campus."

Seton Hall's LLC Department offers Modern Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Ancient Greek, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Russian and Spanish. Each of these will be addressed and express opportunities to how students may reach success in these fields as a part of the day.
