The African Society at UniSA with UniSA Business School collaborated to host Spiced Africa on Tuesday 11 October 2016 at the Students Lounge City West Campus.
Being their last event of the year before exams and the holidays, the student lounge was abuzz with excitement as students mingled around chatting and eating.
The event Spiced Africa was all about providing an opportunity for UniSA’s diverse students to engage with each other and experience the different culinary flavours offered to the students from different countries and cultural backgrounds.
A variety of food was prepared by Mohammed from the African Village Centre restaurant. Students had the opportunity to learn how to cook a traditional dish from South Sudan called Black Eyed Peas and there was a demonstration of Ethiopian coffee roasting.
There was also free henna and hair braiding by members of the African Society at UniSA.
Groovy drum beats from the Hope of Africa Band had the students up on their feet dancing the night away. Besides the free food and drinks, the students had free Eco Caddy rides at their disposition to take them to the city.
According to the organisers “the event was a great success, from a student engagement perspective, we were able to engage so many disengaged students and it was just a great atmosphere for everyone to enjoy”.
