The Brazilian Student Association (BRASA) at Ohio State participated for the third time at Taste of OSU. They served Brazilian dishes at their booth and also did a cultural presentation of Lambada, a rhythm created in Brazil and a dance emerged in Pará, Brazil in the 1980s.

Brazilian graduate students also showcased Brazilian cuisine at the Celebration of Nations event at Wooster. Lastly, Brazilian students interning through The Ohio Program (TOP) on agriculture served Brazilian food during the Fine Swine’s Cultural Exchange Day.

Congratulations everyone and thank you for volunteering and for spreading Brazil’s culture on campus!
