Global Neighborhood Combines House Dinner with Game Night

The Global Neighborhood follows up the success of last fall’s trivia night with a game night at their February House Dinner.

On Wednesday, Feb. 6, the Global Neighborhood held its monthly House Dinner. Traditionally the dinner has included a speaker and discussion period, but last fall the Neighborhood Association hosted a more informal event.

November’s dinner featured a trivia contest, and was attended by dozens of neighborhood residents as well as President Connie Ledoux Book. Everyone had so much fun that it was decided to continue with a more relaxed format. Though it wasn’t always relaxing – competition between some players was fierce!

Several dozen students, faculty, staff members, and families participated in the event. The evening started with a buffet of delicious pub food, including wings, pretzels, and veggies and dips. There were board games, card games, and puzzles on various tables. Some people stuck with old favorites and others took the chance to learn new games.

The next Global Neighborhood sponsored event will be a film, Hindi Medium. This film continues with the Neighborhood’s theme of education and equality. This comedy-drama tells a humorous story of a family who goes to great lengths to get the best education for their child.

The film will be shown on Tuesday, Feb. 19, at 7 p.m. in Global Commons 103.
