In a sunny courtyard of the UT six-pack, HUF students and staff joined other UT programs to promote undergraduate registration for foreign language courses. The event, entitled “Around the World: A Foreign Language Fair”, was sponsored by the student-run Liberal Arts Council. Ishita Paul, a member of the 2008 HUF cohort and the Liberal Arts Council, played a major role in organizing the event. HUF student advisor, Martha Berry, was on hand to answer questions from interested students. Neelam Chaturvedi, wife of Hindi lecturer Vidhu Chaturvedi, painted beautiful henna designs on students’ hands. HUF students and staff distributed HUF frisbees and promotional material.
Many undergraduate students and faculty attended the fair with a number of students expressing interest in registering for Hindi and/or Urdu classes.
