"Thank you so much for your involvement with the International Bazaar...I think it went really well and a lot of people really loved the sampling. Your manager was very nice, and again, thank you very much.

"Thank you for working with the Arabic Club to make our portion of International Education Week a success. The food was well-prepared, and well-recieved. I realize how difficult it is to cook ethnic food; both on an institutional scale and with hard-to-find ingredients. Having said that, I think we came respectably close. I enjoyed the Kibbee that I ate and heard good reviews from others in the club.
In addition to the food aspect, the event was a great way for our organization to reach a larger audience. We had numerous students come by who were interested in having their names written in Arabic and taking our introductory class. We had a nice crop of volunteers who chatted with students on everything from visiting Lebanon to Star Wars filming sites in Tunisia.
Thanks for the effort you put into International Education Week. I wish you best of luck today and Friday as you finish out the week's international menu. You can consider Wednesday a success."
~ S. Elisha Gentle, President. Society of Ibn Khaldun, UAB Arabic Club
