While the Broward campuses are a diverse meeting place for students from all backgrounds, East Asia was the center of attention at the East Asian Culture Fest held on the Davie campus in mid-November. The event featured Japanese Taiko drummers, geisha dancing, martial arts demonstrations, East Asian dishes and sumo suit wrestling. The program was sponsored by Owl Productions, the Broward Multicultural Affairs, Broward Volunteer Services Center, the Broward Student Wellness Center, the Sociology EMT Club and Owl TV.
