Baylor international students will serve a taste of foods characteristic of their home countries during "Cuisines of the World," a festival of foods celebrating International Week, at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 23, in the Barfield Drawing Room of the Bill Daniel Student Center.

"This festival is really the highlight of International Week," said Dr. June Rose Garrott, Baylor's international student advisor. "It heightens awareness of the Baylor community of the presence on campus of international students by offering opportunities for cultural exchange and friendship."

About 340 students representing more than 60 countries are currently enrolled at Baylor. At Saturday's festival, many of the students will be dressed in their national clothing while preparing and serving the evening's international fare. Flags representing the students' countries will also be on display.

Tickets are available in advance at the office of international programs or at the student center ticket office. The cost is $4.50 for adults and $2.50 for children 12 and under. Limited tickets will be available at the door for $6.50.

For more information, contact Garrott at 710-1461.
