A uniquely TROY tradition is happening Wednesday night in the Lamar P. Higgins Ballrooms inside the Trojan Center.

The “ISCO Festival” is an annual international dinner and night of entertainment that’s been hosted by the International Student Cultural Organization since 1975. Nearly in its fifth decade, the festival is a part of the University’s International Education Week celebration.

“More than 250 guests will dine on dishes from at least eight countries and the evening will include a collection of international and domestic student performances of music, singing, and dancing from around the world,” said ISCO Faculty Advisor Joe McCall, a senior lecturer of history.

“The theme for this year is ‘Better Together’ and reflects TROY’s commitment to our role as Alabama’s International University,” he said.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 16 with the program beginning at 6 p.m. Tickets for the event are still available and can be purchased in the Trojan Center or by visiting the International Programs office on the ground floor of Hawkins Hall.
