On November 17, 2016, the Student Government Association hosted their yearly International Festival in the quad area on the St. Pete/Gibbs campus. The purpose of this event is to recognize culture diversity within the United States as well as at the St. Petersburg College student community. The best way to draw in a crowd is with food; and there was LOTS of food for everyone! Over 300 students took part sampling free food from different countries. As the students were waiting in line, 11 different school organizations as well as a few private vendor companies greeted them.  The aim of the different school organizations was to get students more active in college events and to build up camaraderie. Music from various countries filled the air. Finally, there were several tables full of beads where students could make their own jewelry. Overall, the event at the St. Pete/Gibbs campus was successful and no doubt each year it will expand and will attract more students.
