The Nepalese Student Association (NeSA) at SDSU is hosting the third annual Nepal Nite in the Volstorff Ballroom on Feb. 22 from 6 to 9 p.m.

“We are hosting Nepal Nite to (share) our culture, traditions and foods with our guests,” said David Karki, a graduate student from Nepal and the current president of the International Relations Club (IRC).

First guests will be served different varieties of food followed by various entertainment programs.

Eight items of food, as well as songs, dances, a factual presentation and drama come with the $6 ticket price. Non-student adults and children ages 6 to 10 will pay $10 and $3, respectively.

As in the past, the highlight of the event will be the fashion show, which showcases different dresses from Nepal. Men typically wear Daura Suruwal, while women wear a sari.

The NeSA is expecting about 450 guests.

“We want to present the overall picture of Nepal so that more people can get the chance to know a little about it. So many people, when I say I am from Nepal, ask where that even is. Here is their chance to get to see a little about Nepal,” said Dij Joshi, secretary of NeSA.

Tickets can be purchased at the Multicultural Center located in the lower level of The Union. Students can also call the center at 688-5585 or contact Bikas Basnet at 651-1514.
