Hackettstown, N.J. – Centenary College’s School of International Programs celebrates International Education Week this month by conducting 13 separate scheduled events, two of which are open to the public.

There will be a showing of the film “World Peace and Other Fourth Grade Achievements” at 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. on November 15, 2013 at the Ferry Recital Hall.  Members of the community are invited to this opportunity, as well.  This movie focuses on an educational exercise that public school teacher, John Hunter, creates and participates in with his students called “the World Peace Game.”

Other innovative activities that are scheduled for the Centenary College community only include an International Thanksgiving designed to highlight many foods of the world where attendees have the opportunity to vote for their favorite dish; a Study Abroad Bingo Session; an information session about the Peace Corps; a film about Centenary’s Enactus Hopeleaf Project and more!

“It is important to offer our College community and beyond activities in honor of International Education Week,” says Dr. Joseph Linskey, Dean for the School of International Programs at Centenary College.  “These events are designed to appeal to a variety of audiences and acquaint them to diverse customs and cultures.”
