THE SANTA CLARA
April 16, 2015
Santa Clara was treated to a whirlwind festival of food, music, dancing and art on Sunday, as Global Village fused together elements from the Multicultural Center’s diverse clubs. This year’s theme was “Oh, The Places You’ll Go!”
“This is the one event that all MCC clubs come together on this scale,” said Chelsea Andon, the Multicultural Center’s Social and Cultural Programs Coordinator. “We’re all together in one place hanging out and supporting each other. Everyone gets to explore each other’s cultures.”
The festivities, which took place on the corner of Market Street and the Alameda, marked the 29th year of Global Village. This year’s event had a farmers’ market feel to it.
Students roamed the Bend enjoying a number of food trucks from the greater San Jose area and perusing tables that sold artwork, plants and various foods from MCC cultural clubs. The Japanese Student Association sold yakisoba noodles and Intandesh sold samosas.
“Every year, you know there’s going to be amazing food,” said junior Celia Schaefer. “It’s all so tasty and it’s super interesting to talk with the people who made it.”
The cultural clubs of the MCC also treated students to snippets of their culture show performances.
