On Feb. 22, English 10 Honors students attended a “Taste of Nigeria” event in Clausen Hall.

The event allowed students who are currently reading Purple Hibiscus by Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie further insight into the cultural aspects of the novel.

Students had the opportunity to taste Nigerian cuisine prepared by Culinary students. In addition, students spoke with Nigerian high school students via Skype where both groups had the chance to ask each other various questions.

In the conclusion of the event, a cultural African dance was performed in front of the audience.
