Student Life

MESA/Trotter’s 18th annual Taste of Culture was a great way to start the semester! Held at the Trotter Multicultural Center, the event showcased a variety of cultural restaurants from South-East Michigan.

Approximately 900 members of the University of Michigan and Ann Arbor communities enjoyed free food from local restaurants such as Jamaican Jerk Pit, Los Amigos, and Eastern Flame – just to name a few.

In addition to great food, everyone was treated to several performances by student organizations from the University of Michigan, which ranged from Irish Dance to Brazilian Capoeira. The Taste of Culture also featured DJ Diztracted who kept the party going with a great mix of today’s hottest music! In between performances, guests had the opportunity to win prizes such as gift cards to many of the featured restaurants and also free caricature drawings by local artist Walt Griggs.
