Food Day at Niagara College's International Education Week - 14 November 2011

It all started with a tweet by @AwesomeRedhead: "International Buffet today at Niagara College's Niagara on the Lake Campus. If you're around come check it out! Starts at 11:30".

So off we went at 12:30 to the Niagara on the Lake campus of Niagara College. The event was part of the series of events taking place Nov. 14-18, 2011 and is part of Niagara College's Bachelor of Business Hospitality (BABH) program. The college will be hosting a series of events at its Welland and Niagara-on-the-Lake campuses all week long, celebrating the unique cultures and traditions that international students bring to the college’s educational experience. Here is a link for more information.

We arrived and followed the young crowd to what we found to be, and this explains the large number going there, free food. It turned out to be very tasty free food. The student participants acquitted their duties well with confidence and charm.

We thank the students and staff for putting on such a pleasant event. I gather that it was a success and I encourage the Niagara community to support the efforts of the students. 

Please forgive the poor sound quality of the video below. The acoustics were very challenging with the large number of people in such an acoustically lively room.
