Coe international students served meals during last year's banquet. The diverse cuisine makes this a popular campus event each year.

Cuisine from around the world will be featured at the Coe College International Club's 40th annual banquet on Sunday, Feb. 23. Appetizers will be served during a reception at 6 p.m. in the Phifer Commons of Gage Memorial Union, followed by the dinner at 6:30 p.m. in the Gage Dining Hall.

The event is open to the public and tickets are $10, free for children 12 and under, but a ticket is still required. Tickets must be purchased in advance and are available by calling the Coe Box Office at 399-8600, 11 a.m. - 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.

This year's buffet-style banquet features such specialties from various countries, such as bulgogi, topokki, stuffed grape leaves, Irish vegan meatloaf, Nepali momos, French crepes and much more.

In keeping with long-standing tradition, Coe international students will don costumes and serve from a buffet line reflecting their nationalities. A brief program featuring the students will follow the dinner.
