A new beat stirred around campus last week. Kent State University held its annual celebration of Nations extravaganza Monday. The event kicked off I HEART Travel week, a week dedicated to study abroad trips and global awareness. Students filled the ballroom, each receiving a makeshift passport, which would grant them free ethnic food if stamped from nine different booths scattered across the room. Residence halls participated in the event by creating these booths, each representing a different region or country with information and facts. The events also featured performances from a traditional African dance team: The Barefoot Dance Tribe. Feet tapped and hands clapped as students danced with the group to learn a few moves, including myself. According to students, Celebration of Nations made its global footprint in the hearts of Kent State. I’m Lauren Stebelton for Broadcast Beat Reporting.
