TandemPlus Winter Festival & Fall Events

With the TandemPlus Fall session coming to an end, it is time to wrap up the semester with one final event and recap our recent events.

TandemPlus Winter Festival
Tuesday, December 15, 2015
4:00-7:00 p.m.
Nolte 140

Our final event will take place on Tuesday, December 15, 2015, when Tandem and the Minnesota English Language Program (MELP) will host an International Winter Festival in Nolte 140 from 4:00-7:00 p.m. In this dessert potluck, participants are encouraged to bring cultural desserts centered around the winter festival theme! If you can’t bring a dessert, don’t worry; we will have plenty to share.

Looking back, on Thursday, November 19, TandemPlus participated in MISA’s International Bazaar in the Coffman Great Hall. This annual event featured over 30 cultural student groups. The room transformed into a lively, colorful display of culture where students could visit booths and learn more about the rich history and background of each group by viewing unique artifacts presented from various cultures. The Tandem table was staffed by our student officers who gave out carabiners and chocolates. Those who visited our table played a word game in which participants drew an English word out of a hat and had to say the word in another language. The game proved to be very challenging and popular among participants. There were around 700 students in attendance who cycled through the bazaar throughout the night.

The next day, Friday, November 20, TandemPlus hosted our ever-popular Punch Pizza party. Around 50 participants came to enjoy pizza and meet fellow language learners. New partnerships were formed and old friends and partners were also reunited throughout the evening.
