On Thursday, Nov. 6, 2008 Jefferson Activities Group (JAG) sponsored the second annual "A Taste of Jefferson International Day," a progressive food tasting event. Students, faculty and staff were invited to "travel" through different countries with each participating program or department, sampling food and having their passports stamped for a chance to win prizes. In addition, participants had the chance to vote for their favorite "countries" as they passed through distant lands right in our own building! Here, a student begins her international journey!
