Have you ever wondered what Pocky tastes like or what live entertainment looks like in Brazil? Did you know that every Indian dance move tells a story? Ever think you'd be able to experience the world without getting on a plane? Join us for this year's Global Carnivale as we celebrate diverse nations with Pitt's cultural departments and student organizations. This event will include games, music, entertainment, and food samples from around the world. If one country or culture really strikes your fancy, be sure to stop by Study Abroad Row to learn more about the many study abroad options available.
