April 9, 2012: CIE student representatives held their first major student-led event at DePaul entitled Spring Into the Quarter with CIE! The evening centered around interfaith and intercultural poetry and music. Two amazing spoken word poets, Stephanie Rose Perez and Ainee Fatima, kicked off the evening and were followed by an hour and a half long performance by the Chicago-based ensemble Funkadesi. Funkadesi put on a great show, mingling with the audience and encouraging them to get out of their seats to dance. CIE intends make this student-led event an annual staple of our events on campus.
