Sunday Supper are a tradition that International Houses around the world practice in the spirit of cultural exchange and good will. Once a quarter we invite International House residents and alumni as well as staff, faculty and community members to share a meal together, reconnect, and create new relationships. Each Sunday Supper has a unique theme that is incorporated into the decorations, music, and meal. Inspiration for previous Sunday Suppers have come from traditions around the world, including Dia de los muertos and the Diwali festival.
