Project Abstract/ Summary

Culturefest is an annual event hosted by the International Student Association and the Office of International Programs. This day-long celebration of countries and cultures from around the world, is a place for our international students to showcase their cultural traditions. US students from multicultural backgrounds also take part and celebrate their families' heritage. Each country or region will have a table to exhibit their traditional items brought from home. There will be a talent show with music, dances, and other performance art from different cultures and in different languages. We also have a fashion show for students to introduce their traditional clothing. For many, the best part of Culturfest is the food court which will offer a wide variety of food from around the globe.
