International House


World Showcase

The World Showcase program highlights several countries each semester by planning a week of programs to celebrate that culture and its people.  The first program is a Cooking Demonstration.  This gives attendees an opportunity to learn how to make a certain food from another culture.  It’s a truly hands-on experience and you get to eat whatever you make!  Next is the International Coffeehouse in Hodges Library.  The host group provides a small snack and a coffee or tea from that region.  The UT community is invited to stop to chat in a relaxing atmosphere. The Culture Night program is the “big event” of the week which includes a traditional meal from the country, presentations about the country, and music and dance as well.  The World Showcase programs  are presented by members of different International associations or clubs from UT and organized together with the International House.  Past countries that we have featured include:  Zimbabwe, Saudi Arabia, Colombia, China, France, Brazil, Ethiopia, Japan, Thailand, Germany, India, South Korea, Russia, Mexico, and many more!
