A much-loved tradition — International Week returned this year to the delight of the Tabor community. International week is an annual festival when students celebrate various cultures from all around the world.
One of the highlighted events from the week was Yaya Ma '21 playing clarinet and performing Northern Jiangsu Variations, by Wu Zhang during Virtual Chapel. Two exotic meals were served in the dining hall, which featured a Caribbean Dinner with delicious dishes from the Islands, and a Korean Kimchi night. "Did You Know" slides were on display around campus to test Seawolves' knowledge of cultures near and far. And the week closed out with a community favorite, the faculty-student Badminton Tournament.
This event is always a community favorite when the diverse backgrounds of many students are recognized and celebrated. Through exposure to some new sights, sounds, tastes, and events, we hope that our students can connect and experience something new together, learning all the way.
The Forecasters Series showcases alumni leaders and up-and-comers in their industries who will "forecast" the next 18 months in their respective areas of expertise. Epidemiology, higher education, and professional sports are just a few of the topics slated for discussion. This collection of leaders is sure to help you understand the changes in their fields and explain how these changes may alter your daily lives. Whether your interest is professional or personal, these one-hour presentations are sure to enlighten, and help all of us navigate the future.
A forecaster himself, Bruce Cobbold, taught us Heraclitus’ famous axiom, “Change is the only constant in life.” While this may never be truer than it is today, we are certainly better than ever at forecasting.
