Mon. Nov. 18, the Middle East Center at the Kellogg Research Building (KRB) opened their doors to the FSU community over sweets and mint tea. Students and faculty gathered in lively conversations to discuss Middle Eastern appreciation and culture. The open house also gave students a chance to learn about the Arabic Program at FSU and the only full B.A. degree in Middle Eastern Studies offered in Florida.
