Freshmen Resident Life Students Host International Dinner

Freshmen in the Bolles Resident Life program hosted an International Dinner September 19 in Verlander Hall on the Upper School San Jose Campus. The students worked with Dean of Resident Life Cyndi Trapnell and Chef Cirilo Victoria to create the evening’s menu, which featured special meals from their home countries.

Boarding students in all grade levels and dorm families attended the flavorful feast, along with faculty, staff and day students specifically invited by the freshmen boarders. Dishes included wonton soup, garlic-flavored pork ribs, tomato egg noodles, paneer butter masala with paratha, pelmeni dumplings, chilaquiles, pasta and meatballs, pork and fennel dumplings and piska ku funchi.
