ONU chapter of SIFE to host fourth annual 'Global Holidays' event

The Ohio Northern University chapter of Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) will host the fourth annual "Global Holidays" event on Saturday, Dec. 15, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in James F. Dicke Hall.

This free event gives children between the ages of 5 and 12 the opportunity to learn more about the world and its different cultures by participating in activities and crafts representing various countries. These activities will be conducted by SIFE members and supervised by faculty advisors Dr. Kay Zekany and Dr. Christine North.

Those interested can register children by contacting Dr. Zekany at or (419) 772-2074 by Dec. 7. Both a registration form and an emergency medical form are required. Space is limited, and reservations will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Participating children are asked to bring a sack lunch and a small, wallet-sized photograph for their "passports." The photograph will be returned with the passport at the end of the event.

SIFE is a global, nonprofit organization that is changing the world through highly dedicated student teams on more than 1,600 university campuses in 40 countries. The James F. Dicke College of Business Administration at Ohio Northern University is home to one such team. SIFE helps students develop leadership, teamwork and communication skills by learning, practicing and teaching the principles of free enterprise (including globalization), thereby improving the standard of living for millions in the process.
