Students serve up savory entrees from around the world, satisfying the palettes of foodies across the college — all to the tune of just $5

Nearly 150 hungry diners from every floor of the dental school trekked to the sixth floor foyer in droves for the Nov. 30 Multicultural Luncheon. Members of the Muslim Student Dental Association, Hispanic Student Dental Association, Asian-American Dental Society and Student National Dental Association provided the food for the event, which was created with the spirit of diversity in mind.

To add to the festive atmosphere, many student organization members and faculty advisers donned native attire and folkloric costumes as they dished up the international cuisine.
