Event Description

For one night in February each year, the world shows up on the Prescott campus of Embry-Riddle. At this year’s International Festival students and the local community were treated to an evening celebration of international culture and diversity. It was the largest festival yet with 550 attending.

“If you’ve ever visited a market in an international country you know there’s a lot going on. It’s loud and festive and fun. That’s what the International Festival is like. It’s a great opportunity to get to know people from all over the world, one-on-one,” said Andy Fraher, Director of the Center for International Programs and Services (CIPS) and International Student Affairs.

International students on campus dressed in their cultural attire and mingled with the crowd exchanging information about their home country. Some even had educational materials provided by their country’s embassy to share. The delicious food was a focal point of the evening but many participated in free face painting, international quizzes, and Mehndi henna art. Additional highlights of the evening included traditional dancing performances from India, Hawai’i, Saudi Arabia/United Arab Emirates/Libya and Latin America.

Arizona Hot Spring - Lake Mead National Recreation Area (U.S. National Park Service)

Arizona Hot Spring is located in a dramatic slot canyon that joins the river just downstream of Ringbolt Rapids. The spring forms several pools that are located about 1,000 feet from the river, where the canyon walls are nearly vertical and about 6 to 9 feet apart. Directly at the source the spring discharges highly mineralized water at a rate of about 30 gallons per minute and a temperature of about 111 degrees Fahrenheit. The spring issues from fractures in Miocene-age volcanic rocks near the intersection of two faults. White Rock Canyon is a strikingly beautiful volcanic area. There is a wide variety of desert plants to be found, including indigo bush, ground cherry, rush-milkweed, rabbit brush, Mormon tea, desert fir, cheesebush, globemallow, desert tobacco, desert trumpet, rock nettle and rock daisy. Rocks encountered during the hike are primarily volcanic, including flow and tuff (ash) deposits, with some granite boulders washed down from Wilson Ridge.
