Lebanese Student Association bringing a taste of culture to OU Friday
The Lebanese Student Association is hosting its annual cultural night, including traditional Lebanese food, dances and music, at 7 p.m. Friday at Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History.
The cultural night will feature a catered dinner of traditional food, student performances including traditional songs and dances, a live disc jockey and belly dancing, said Wassim Tabet, Lebanese Student Association officer and civil engineering and environmental science department graduate research assistant.
Approximately 250 to 300 participants are anticipated, which include the students who buy tickets, members of the Lebanese Student Association and performers, Tabet said.
“The most unique thing about this night is that it’s Lebanese and it’s fun,” Tabet said. “The best thing about [the cultural night] is the audience gets to interact with the performers and dance with them. From an unbiased standpoint, the food is good, too.”
Students can purchase tickets for the Lebanese Cultural Night for $8, and non-students can purchase tickets for $13. Tickets can be reserved by emailing email@example.com or by calling (405) 436-3025.
