Western Carolina University is wrapping up its International Education Week at Folkmoot Friendship Center with a Middle Eastern Friendship Dinner and a short film, Bon Voyage, followed by a panel discussion with US residents from Syria and Yemen.  This cultural event will take place on Friday, November 17, 2017, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
