See a showcase of the different countries represented by Missouri S&T’s international students and learn about other cultures during Missouri S&T’s celebration of International Students Day. This year’s theme is “Around the World in 90 Minutes.”
The day’s activities will begin with an exhibition at 3 p.m. in the Havener Center atrium. Students from various countries will display cultural artifacts, clothing and more from around the world. Cultural performances and a fashion show will be held 4:30-6 p.m. in the St. Pat’s Ballroom of the Havener Center, followed by an authentic international dinner buffet at 6 p.m. and an open dance floor.
“This year, the International Students Club actively participated in many campus events, including Homecoming, where we won the award for best organization and first runners-up in the king and queen contest,” says Sheshan Wijeratna Mahavidanalage, vice president of the International Students Club and a senior in information science and technology from Sri Lanka. “We are trying to build a bridge between local students and international students so they can share their cultural values.”
Tickets for the event are $12 for the public and will be available 11 a.m.-2 p.m. weekdays in the Havener Center atrium, located on the Missouri S&T campus. For more information about the event, visit facebook.com/iscmst.
