ECE Celebrates 3rd Annual International Day

Undergraduates, graduate students, alumni and friends, faculty, and staff from the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department joined together to share their different cultures at the third annual ECE International Day on Tuesday, April 14, 2009, in the A.V. Williams Building. Over 200 students, faculty, and staff attended the event, representing over 36 different countries. Costumes and music organized by graduate student Marcos Vasconcelos entertained the crowds and a medley of foods from the different countries satisfied the appetites of those who filled the room. Students, faculty, and staff dressed up in traditional costumes and brought in a variety of dishes for fellow students and colleagues to sample their nation's culture.

This year, the event was sponsored by ECE Graduation Student Association, Women in ECE, and the ECE Undergraduate Student Council.

The different cultures represented included Brazil, Chile, China, Denmark, England, Ethiopia, India, Iran, Ireland, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Korea, Lebanon, Philippines, Poland, Taiwan, Turkey, and the United States.
