International Students and Scholars Reception
International students, scholars, and professionals new to the Delaware Valley are invited to attend this year's 43rd annual International Students Reception on Friday, October 5, 5:00 to 7:00 pm. The Welcome Reception, held in the Chinese Rotunda at the Penn Museum, 3260 South Street on the University of Pennsylvania campus in Philadelphia, is free for all international students.
Every year the annual Welcome Reception, considered a national model amongst international educators, hosts hundreds of international guests from over 100 countries. Penn Museum's International Classroom program presents this celebration to connect international guests with the local community and its leaders, and to introduce attendees to the multicultural community of Philadelphia.
Special guests include consul officials from India, Turkey, and Nepal, who will be in attendance to greet guests. The event also features entertainment as diverse as the guest list; Visitors are treated to performances of Chinese classical and folk dance by the Penn Chinese Dance Club, African-themed percussion by La Salle College's Neo-African Drums 'n Dance group (pictured), and a unique combination of multicultural music and dance by the co-ed student group PennHype.
