International students offering annual Festival of Cultures April 1

March 28, 2016

Festival of Cultures 2015

Students from last year’s Festival of Cultures share their authentic food from countries such as Nepal, Mexico, Ghana, Nigeria and more. Along with the meal, informative presentations and native dances are displayed for participants to enjoy.

International food, culture, displays and performances will be available for enjoyment at Northwestern Oklahoma State University on Friday, April 1, at 6:30 p.m. in the Student Center Ballroom during the annual Festival of Cultures and is open to the public.

This event brings Northwestern international students, together with campus and community members to share food and information about the students’ home countries.

Tickets to the event for adults age 13 and up are $10. Tickets for Northwestern students (with ID) and children ages 4-12 are $5; and children under 3 are free. The public is encouraged to attend and learn about different cultures that have come together at Northwestern. Students will perform ethnic dances, songs and more. Tickets may be purchased at the door.

“The Festival of Cultures is an event to help show support for the International students who chose Northwestern as their ‘home away from home’, all while learning more about their cultures,” Becca Cook, international academic adviser, said. “I look forward to seeing the native dances, viewing informative presentations, and eating the different foods that our students have worked hard to put together for this event.”

Countries represented include Nepal, Mexico, Ghana, Nigeria and more.

The event is sponsored by the International Student Association.
