Who doesn’t love to grab a delicious meal at Noodles and Company? This year, The Justice League, a social justice club, will be hosting an event to better connect international students with American students. The event, named Noodles and Company, because of the traditional dishes being prepared by people of many different cultures, will take place in Querbes Hall on Tuesday, September 26 at 2:30 pm. It was created and planned by students involved in The Justice League who felt that there was a divide between international and American students, which needed to be fixed.

“Last year, I challenged students to come up with ideas to make our own community stronger,” said club moderator Ms. Emily Egan, “and I think this is what inspired them to come up with this event.”

Noodles and Company will consist of bonding through food, games, and learning about different customs and traditions of both international and American students. With a purpose to bring students together to learn about each other’s different cultures in a comfortable way, The Justice League hopes to lessen any barriers between students and create new relationships between students.

“There is a divide between international students and American students because of different cultures and language barriers,” said Grace Castellese, a member of Justice League. “You don’t see a lot of mixing of international and American students in friend groups even though they both feel that they want to befriend each other.”

Noodles and Company will give students an opportunity to bond with each other in a comfortable environment. Students will be welcomed and be able to feel at ease when meeting new people with the potential of creating strong, new and lasting relationships. By being exposed to the different cultures and stories of their peers, American and international students will be able to better understand one another and form friendships based off of common interests or ideas.

“International students and American students have articulated that they want to develop more friendships with each other, but they have never really gotten the opportunity to do so,” Ms. Egan stated. “This get together will allow them to have a chance to do that.”
