EXPERIENCE A TASTE OF ASIA SUNDAY, FEB. 11

Old Dominion University will host the second annual Taste of Asia Festival from 4-7 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 11, in the Webb University Center's cafeteria. The festival, which is free and open to the public, will highlight traditional Asian culture through various art forms, including dance, musical performances and martial arts.

Authentic Asian cuisine will be available for purchase. Food tickets are $1 each. Vendors will donate 30 percent of the proceeds from food sales to participating student organizations.
