“Taste of UCF”…what a great way to introduce students to the diverse UCF community. On the first day of the fall semester, the Multicultural Student Center held its annual Taste of UCF. The event has increased in popularity and attendance every year since its founding. This year’s Taste of UCF offered food samples from over 25 countries, including dessert and interesting drink ‘concoctions.’ Cultural music filled the venue as students witnessed performances from diverse cultural dance groups and poets. Registered Student Organizations were set up outside the doors for students to learn more information about UCF’s different clubs and organizations.
Students expanded their minds and palates to cultures that are different from their own, kicking off a great semester of programming from the MSC executive board.
Brice Yates, new coordinator for MSC, commented on this year’s particular success, “It’s amazing to see the amount of students that attend culturally-based events. I see a lot of potential for the MSC to grow even more and I’m excited to be a part of that change.”
It is the goal of the Multicultural Student Center to host events such as Taste of UCF to create an atmosphere of diversity and education for the UCF community.
