The selection included premade sushi along with a sushi chef to make custom creations.

There were so many different types of sushi, such as, Spicy Roll, Rainbow Roll, California Roll, Hawaiian Roll, Tuna Roll, Dragon Roll, Vegetable Roll, Seaside Combo Roll, and Cream Cheese Roll.

Numerous students enjoyed the cuisine.

Junior Tamra Fisher, a chemistry and math major, said, “I came out to the event to hang out roommates.”

Fisher said her favorites were the Cream Cheese Roll and Spicy Tuna Roll.

Along with the sushi, senior business administration major Justin Baird taught students how to make origami, the Japanese art of paper folding.

Baird became involved with learning how to make origami in the 4th grade and had a teacher from Japan.

“I would make origami’s to manage stress,” said Baird. “Origami is an art form of self-expression and creativity.”

For many students, such as freshman biology major Merrideth Kessler, that evening was their first time trying origami.

“It was awesome,” Kessler said.

Chair of Diversity Committee, Jared Frye, a sophomore and pre pharmacy major, said he was happy with the turnout at the event.
