Austin Peay State University’s international night will present everybody in the community an opportunity to explore different countries through cuisine, décor and demonstrations.

And everything is free – even the food.

The event will be Nov. 12 from 6-7:30 p.m. in the Memorial Health Building, also known as the Red Barn, on Austin Peay’s campus. International night will be open to the public, and everyone can wear his or her cultural attire. The event – which coincides with International Education Week – usually draws more than 500 people.

“International night has been a long-standing APSU tradition for more than 20 years," said Marissa Chandler, director of Study Abroad and International Exchange. "This exciting and eye-opening multicultural celebration provides us an opportunity to bring the world to campus.”

And this year, the Zuzu African Acrobats from America's Got Talent will perform. Zuzu acrobats are a five-person Kenyan acrobatic show that embodies the Bantu culture of east Africa.

The show will feature fast pyramid building, limbo, chair balancing, comedy, fast skip rope and juggling to high-energy Lingala music.

International night is a partnership of the offices of Study Abroad and International Exchange, Student Life & Engagement, International Student Services and the Govs Programming Council.
