Turkish Student Association Presents Turkish Night 2013

turk bayragiEvery year the Turkish Student Association holds an evening to celebrate the independence of the Republic of Turkey. The program promotes international understanding by hosting a cultural show from Turkish students. The evening is intended to serve for cultural diversity amongst the Penn State community.

Guests will have chance to experience Turkish culture through dance, food, music and a presentation. The Turquoise Folk Dance Group, the dance group that will perform during the event, aims to develop a social network between the members and the State College community. Along with the dance group, Anatolian Fusion is set to perform live music to its audience as well. Anatolian Fusion happens to be one of a kind in State College since it’s the only active Turkish music band in the area. The band performs songs with a blend of East & West Turkish styles of cultural music.

“It really is an experience that we all look for throughout the year. It is a great way to learn about the culture along with having an enjoyable night with friends and family. Not only that but it is also an opportunity to meet new faces here at Penn State,” said Oguzcan Diktas, senior in Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering.

Guests will also have the opportunity to taste unique and rich Turkish cuisine that is specially catered for this evening.

“It is difficult to hold a non-profit event for 200 people so we cannot thank our volunteer members enough for all of their hard work and dedication,” said Omer Dogru, senior Energy Business and Finance who is also the Vice President of the Turkish Student Association. “This year we put a huge emphasis on upgrading our event to the smallest details to make it an outstanding and a pleasant evening for everyone.”

The event will be held in the HUB at the Heritage Hall on October 25, 2013 with doors opening at 5:30 p.m. There are a limited number of tickets, which range from $30 dollars for Penn Students, $31 for children and $35 for everyone else.

You may purchase tickets at the Turkish Student Association office located in the HUB PRCC during the office hours. You may also contact [email protected] for any questions regarding the event or the club. Turkish Student Association hopes to see everyone at the Turkish Night this year.
