Belly Dance and Hummus: Khaleeji’s Arabian Night
Last night, Penn State’s Khaleeji Student Association held its Arabian Night in Heritage Hall, a colorful event designed to showcase the various Middle Eastern cultures that it represents. With miles of food, fashion, and a rather gymnastic belly dancer, students and parents alike were given a very lively taste of Arabian custom and society.
Furthemore, given that Penn State’s cultural diversity is painfully minimal, the Khaleeji Student Association played the ever-important role of showcasing minority; hopefully, we all left with a slightly greater urgency to explore cultures other than our own. If not, at least we didn’t leave hungry.
