    Virtual Festival of Nations - Share a Video with Us!

    April 28, 2020

    Festival of Nations is a cherished tradition for our campus community where students have the opportunity to showcase their native and family countries' culture and heritage through food, informational poster boards, traditional wear, and interactive activities. With that sentiment in mind, we still want to offer that opportunity to our Scranton community.

    We are planning a virtual version for FON, and with that, we are looking for student participants to showcase countries represented in our Scranton community via a 3-5 minute video. Please see the link to our "Student Participant Form" here. We would really appreciate your support in making this event possible.

    The deadlines we have set for this event are the following:
    Deadline to sign up and complete and send videos: Monday, May 4 by 4:30 p.m.
    Day of the event: Friday, May 8 (stay tune through Royal Sync for event advertising)
