On Nov. 16, the Marple campus Multicultural Festival showcased cultural foods from a number of different countries, including China, India, Canada, and Colombia. Tables at the festival also displayed infoboards, giving prospective visitors general knowledge about their countries, such as a historical overview, fun facts, and more information about their national dishes.
