The presentation is free; however, lunch is not provided. Attendees are welcome to purchase lunch at the Starbuck’s Venom Pit Coffee Shop or bring something to enjoy. According to Melanie Culver, IRO Activities Coordinator, all community members, OJC staff, and students are invited to attend. “The IRO Lunch and Learns are great for learning about different cultures and sharing cultural norms and traditions.”

The IRO is continuing the spring International Lunch and Learn series with Colombia featuring Mateo Villate Capeda. Mateo is a sophomore working toward an Associate of Arts degree, with an emphasis in business. He is also a member of the golf team. In his free time Mateo enjoys dancing and is learning to play the piano.

International Lunch and Learns were established to provide an introduction to the cultures that make up the student community by featuring students from different corners of the globe. At this monthly program, students share what they know as a natives and the audience gets the inside track about countries, cultures and place. The Lunch and Learn program is sponsored by the IRO and the OJC Learning Commons.
