From July 6-7, EARTH University will celebrate its 24th EARTH Multicultural Fair, under this year’s theme of “Family Agriculture.” All funds raised during the Fair are used to bring at least one family member of each fourth-year student to EARTH’s graduation ceremony in December.
“To reach this goal, students from every class collaborate and help with the organization and execution of the Fair, with guidance from professors and staff,” comments EARTH president José Zaglul.
The EARTH Multicultural Fair is one of the most beloved cultural activities in Costa Rica and provides residents with a chance to explore our campus, interact with students, experience a variety of delicious international foods and enjoy traditional dances and music from more than 35 countries around the world.
“Sports enthusiasts can participate in two activities and support our students at the same time. There will be an 8k recreational walk on Saturday and all participants will be given a tree that they can plant during the race. On Sunday, there will be recreational cycling events of 20 and 40 kilometers,” comments fourth-year student Maria Paula Ochoa (’14, Ecuador).
The Fair will also feature local artisans, in addition to the Expo Novo, an exposition space that highlights technological innovations such as the latest trends in renewable energy.
