Student Development Opens a Window on the World

Philadelphia University’s Office of Student Development Programs presents the second annual Window on the World, a series of international cultural events and activities for students, faculty and staff to enjoy.

The South American portion of the series kicks off this Tuesday, Oct. 2 with the Peruvian tradition of Retablos-making.  All members of the University community are invited to make these wooden boxes, which usually contain scenes of daily life or figurines of protective saints, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in The Kanbar Campus Center Performance Space.

Other upcoming events include:

  • Dinner at local Sazon Venezuelan Restaurant on Tuesday, Oct. 10.  Those interested may sign up in The Kanbar Campus Center, Suite 311 (students, $5; faculty and staff, $10).
  • A screening of the South American film, Motorcycle Diaries, based on the books Diarios de motocicleta by Ernesto “Che” Guevara and Con el Che por America Latina by Alberto Granado, on Monday, Oct. 22 at 6 p.m. in The Kanbar Campus Center Performance Space.  A discussion will immediately follow the film, lead by Prof. Rick Shain, School of Liberal Arts.
  • A performance by Brazilian duo MINAS on Tuesday, Oct. 23 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Common Thread.
