The Global Citizens Club has been preparing for the national Mix-It-Up lunch that will take place on Tuesday, October 31st in the cafeteria.

On that day, Sodexo will be providing an international lunch. The food will be from many different countries. The event will help people to sit with others that they would not sit with and enjoy what new people have to say, said Emma Dirocco, a Global Citizens Club member.

Mix-it-up lunch was originally started by the international organization Teaching Tolerance. Their goal is to encourage students to identify, question and cross social boundaries.

Global Citizens Club, which welcomes all students at Franklin Pierce University regardless of race, ethnicity, and nationality, is planning to work with ALANA and Sodexo.

“I am excited for this event because it has good potential,” said Dirocco.

This will be the second year for the event and the Global Citizens Club is hoping to make it a tradition.

N’Keyah Diaz, the president of Global Citizens Club, said, “There are so many people from around the world on this small campus and it would be wonderful if we could all accept and understand their cultures.”

The time of the event will be announced through email to all students, so keep an eye open for it, said Diaz.
