An annual campus favorite, the Asia Day festival, will be sponsored once again by the IU Northwest School of Business and Economics and the Office of Diversity Programming on Thursday, Sept. 30, at the Moraine Student Center. Students, local citizens and visiting guests will entertain the campus with music and dances inspired by various Asian cultures. The event runs from noon until 1:30 p.m. New this year, the event will incorporate a quiz on Asian culture, geography, history and foods.

Asia Day is a popular cultural event that features Asian delicacies, performances from Asian dancers and musicians, colorful and traditional ethnic dress, and other attractions. The campus and community are invited to come out and join in this festive celebration.
