Students will have the opportunity to explore different cultures, celebrate diversity and foster lifelong learning through hands-on activities this Thursday from 5 to 7 p.m.

The Multicultural Party is a collaborative arts festival that will bring together the Quinnipiac and local communities to celebrate the partnership between Quinnipiac and greater New Haven-based non-profit organization, P.L.A.C.E.

“It is an opportunity for our students, faculty, staff and their families to participate in interactive craft activities and enjoy music, food and art displays,” said Sarah Driscoll, director of international student services.

Students can learn more about P.L.A.C.E. in Burt Kahn Court and discover ways that they can continue to engage with the organization through volunteering and internships.

The event will allow students to learn about an important civic body of Hamden and foster growth by building a better relationship with the community, said Elahee.

“Quinnipiac has a wealth of resources that are beneficial to the surrounding towns, but especially Hamden. We’re looking forward to connecting to the international students, faculty, staff and all of the students at Quinnipiac,” said Debbie Chavoya, director of the non-profit organization. “P.L.A.C.E. will be offering opportunities for students to intern, volunteer and work with P.L.A.C.E. in the areas of multicultural art, STEAM learning, social media and marketing and business development.”
