Notre Dame students don’t need to use their passports to experience foreign cultures this week, as they can soak in global traditions and customs during International Festival Week. McKenna Pencak, assistant director for education and outreach for International Student Services and Activities (ISSA), said the Festival features a variety of cultures from around the world. The events began last Saturday and continues through this Sunday. “Basically it’s just a week to celebrate international students and the international student community, as well as the entire Notre Dame community and everyone that has different backgrounds and cultural heritages,” she said. Pencak said International Festival Week began as a cultural celebration and performance and is now a celebration of the University’s international community. “We have over 900 international students from about 90 countries, and this is a week to celebrate a variety of cultural heritages as well as our multicultural students,” she said. “Also, it’s great because it’s not only ISSA, it’s a collaboration with other departments and organizations on campus. We work to make sure everyone is included and that as many countries and cultures are represented as possible.” The week’s primary event, the International Festival, has been held for over 40 years and originally was the event’s only activity, Pencak said. The Festival, which will be held today from 6 to 8 p.m. in the LaFortune Student Center Ballroom, will feature performances from students and campus cultural organizations, as well as international desserts. Pencak said the performances will include a Bollywood dance, a Chinese song and a Japanese tea ceremony. There also will be activity tables and a question and answer session. The Week also features an International Children’s Festival, Pencak said. “That is basically a children’s version of the International Festival, and it’s free, and we work with University Village, the married student housing,” she said. “We’re going to be doing international arts and crafts.” Fischer O’Hara Grace Graduate Residences are usually active in International Festival Week because of the University’s high number of international graduate students, Pencak said. “They are hosting a great event with [associate professor of painting and drawing] Fr. Martin Nguyen on Friday,” she said. “There’s going to be dinner and dessert and then everyone’s going to go to Holy Cross annex to tour Fr. Martin Nguyen’s [art] studio.” Pencak said overall student participation for the International Festival Week is typically high. “It’s really fun because it’s a way for international and national students to get together and celebrate different cultures and celebrate where they’re from,” she said. “It’s really neat to see everyone participating and talking about his or her home countries and cultures and cultural heritages.”
View Comments Lin-Manuel Miranda Once you’re in the Mickey Mouse Club, you’re in it for life. After writing songs for Disney’s Moana and appearing in the upcoming Mary Poppins sequel, Lin-Manuel Miranda will team up with certified Disney legend Alan Menken. The two will pen tunes (and adapt some familiar ones) for a new live action take on The Little Mermaid, according to Deadline.Menken won two Oscars for his work on the 1989 animated classic: Best Score and Best Original Song for “Under the Sea,” which he co-wrote with the late Howard Ashman. The two were also nominated for “Kiss the Girl.”The Little Mermaid has had a significant impact on Miranda’s life and career; the Hamilton creator credits the film as part of the reason why he and his wife Vanessa named their son Sebastian. He’s also been known to tweet Little Mermaid/Drake mashups.Marc Platt will produce the project alongside Miranda. No word yet on when the new film will hit the big screen, but in the meantime, we’ll at least be able to catch Miranda’s tunes in Moana, premiering on November 23, as well as plenty of Broadway favorites in Disney’s live action Beauty and the Beast next year.

Smith, 26, Ikeem M. Starks, 25, and Quadir J. Burley, 18, were charged with multiple felonies following an investigation that is still under way by the AG’s Organized Crime Section.Smith, Starks, and Burley used Instagram to recruit people who allowed their accounts at banks in Philadelphia and Montgomery counties to be used to carry out the fraud. The suspects posted bank logos on Instagram and enticed people to “like” their posts. The criminals then obtained account information from the people who responded, promising them a cut of the money they planned to steal.Pennsylvania authorities said the trio stole more than $50,000 from various financial institutions, including PSECU. However, the other financial institutions have not been identified yet because the investigation is ongoing and more charges are expected to be filed, Shapiro said.
