The International Coffee Hour is designed for faculty, staff, and students at California State University, Fresno, as well as for people in the surrounding communities.


Date: Tuesday, September 14, 2010 at 2:00 – 3:00 p.m.
Presenter: Ellen P da Costa Cruz, linguistics major

Brazil, the biggest country in South America, is very much a country of contrasts. When someone hears the word Brazil, one thinks of the great Amazon forest, fantastic beaches, great soccer players, Carnival time, etc. Brazil has much more to offer – warm people, fantastic music, great cities, technological developments, a wide range of weather patterns, an awesome mixture of cultures and races – and much more! It is appropriate that the 2014 Soccer World Cup will be held in Brazil,as the game is played to a samba beat that runs through the heart and soul of the entire country.


ICH 2010 continues

In March, the International Coffee Hour moved to countries in Africa.  Starting with ZAMBIA on March 2, KENYA on March 9, BURKINA FASO on March 16 and EGYPT on March 23.

Presenters: Dalitso Ruwe, Joseph Oloo, Palingwinde Yves Ouedraogo and Marian N Mikhael were excellent!  They brought displays, artifacts and pictures to share with everyone.
