.About Us



by Bradley Moon, international student advisor

Last year’s bazaar, which was sponsored by the Council of Countries Club, was a new campus event designed to kick off the holiday season at HPU. “This year,” said Ann Newton, director of International Student Services, “the bazaar will be a part of downtown’s ‘First Friday’ activities. This will allow our students the opportunity to share their traditions and culture with a larger public.
“ The holidays are a perfect occasion to showcase the vast array of cultures and ideas represented among the HPU community,” Newton added.

Booths will be on display from 4 to 7:30 p.m., and cash prizes up to $300 will be awarded to the students or organizations designing the most festive, creative, and interactive displays.

Last year, the winning exhibit was the Black Student Union, which took the top prize with a display on the traditions of Kwanza.

Involvement in the International Holiday Bazaar is open to all HPU students regardless of club affiliation. Anyone with the enthusiasm and creativity is encouraged to participate.

Tekla Weiterman, a junior from Canada, president of the Council of Countries, and chair of this year’s event, said: “Many people will never have the opportunity to travel to the parts of the world represented among the HPU student body. The Holiday Bazaar is a fun and creative venue to convey our traditions to the community.”

For information on participating in the International Holiday Bazaar, call the International Center at 543-8088 or stop by 1164 Bishop, Suite, 1100.
