Frequently Asked Questions
Is this event only for international students?
Absolutely not! This event is open to all Anderson students — G/F/E/MBA, MFE, MSBA, faculty, staff and PHD. If you have an adventurous palate, want to help promote Anderson’s diversity or are simply hungry for good food, then this event is for you! Note: members of the International Business Association (IBA) automatically get one complimentary ticket.
I’ve reserved my Thursdays for Anderson Afternoons. What happens to AA that week?
There will be no AA on May 16th in lieu of the International Food Festival, but we’ll still have unlimited AA drinks available. (IFF ticket purchase will be required to access)
Can my Sig-O join the event?
Yes! Feel free to purchase additional tickets for them online or on campus.
Am I supposed to wear my national costume to the event?
Traditional costumes are optional, but highly encouraged. Besides, where else can you get away with wearing a kimono to school?
Which countries/regions will be represented in this year’s IFF?
Last year, we had over a dozen cuisines represented. This year, we’re working to beat those numbers and bring you as many food and drink options as possible.
I'm tentatively scheduled to be somewhere else on Thursday. Is there an option for last minute tickets?
Yes! We’ll be setting up desks to sell tickets in the Anderson courtyard during the last week to the event as well as at AA on May 9th (we accept payment via Venmo or PayPal). There will be no cash sales of tickets. We HIGHLY recommend advance purchase and collection of wristband and coupons so that you can enter the festival without waiting in the long queue.
Can I buy more coupons to purchase more food/ drinks?
Yes! You can purchase extra coupons at the desks in the Anderson courtyard or at the festival. Extra coupons can be purchased only after purchasing the original ticket. $5 will give you 4 coupons. (we accept payment via Venmo or PayPal). There will be no cash sales of coupons.
I'm an individual interested in setting up my own booth at the event. Who can I get in touch with?
Please get in touch with Mounica Battula (Mounica.firstname.lastname@example.org) or Ankush Gadodia (email@example.com).
We look forward to seeing you there!
