Cultural Celebrations at OSU (Winter/Spring 2007)

January 29th, 2007

An impressive and insightful series of cultural events are unfolding at OSU, thanks to the International Students of OSU (ISOSU) and their many “affiliates”. More than a dozen student organizations at OSU that represent a particular culture, country, and sometimes entire continent have joined ISOSU’s over-arching goal to provide international programming on the campus. What’s especially unique about ISOSU, is that while a particular group may be the focus, and therefore, develops the concept and content of its own event, everyone affiliated with ISOSU gets inovolved with the food preparation, decorating, hosting, clean-up and even performances. In other words, there’s ample opportunity for cross-cultural conversations, connections and comparisons that extend well beyond the event itself. ISOSU is by no means restricted to “international students” either. In fact, the only pre-requisites for participating is to have a curiosity about cultures and inquisitiveness about the world.

Indonesia Night (read about it more in the Daily Barometer) held last Saturday, proved to be a beautiful and heart-warming evening. Stay tuned as we share highlights of each celebration taking place this winter and spring.
