Hi, Blooming Viewers!

We know it’s been awhile since you’ve heard from us, and we’re really sorry about that.  We’ve missed our readers and our work, and plan on coming back in full color for the start of the fall semester.

For now, we’re breaking our hiatus just to let you know that CultureFest is coming up again soon!  If you’re an IU student, or a staff or faculty member, you’ll want to check it out.

CultureFest is an event designed to bring students a sampling of the many cultures that come together at Indiana University.  This year’s CultureFest will commence with a presentation in the IU Auditorium at 4:30 pm on Thursday, August 16th.

Following the presentation (which you must attend to get food vouchers), there will be an outdoor celebration in the plaza around Showalter Fountain until 7:30, followed by an after-party in the IU Art Museum.  The celebration will feature booths sponsored by various campus offices and student organizations.  Offerings will include a sampling of international cuisine, henna tattoos, and music from around the world on the outdoor stage.

As always, the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Student Support Services (GLBTSSS) will be offering rainbow sherbet and LGBT trivia. Stop by to cool off, show off your LGBT smarts, and compete to win tokens for free bagels, courtesy of Bloomington Bagel Company!
