Columbus, Miss. – Mississippi University for Women’s International Student Association and Nepalese Student Association will jointly present a night of culture, traditions and costumes at International Night Wednesday, April 17 at 7 p.m. in Rent Auditorium.
“There are performances from all over. We will have dances, songs, short skits and a poetry reading. It's a showcase of culturally diverse sets of performances. It's not limited to international students, though,” said Umisha KC, a senior communication student from Nepal and external affairs officer and social chair of the International Student Association.
“We've had faculty performances and we welcome non-international students to perform as well. We've also had performances from international students from nearby schools like State and Ole Miss,” said KC.
International night is an opportunity to celebrate the different cultures on The W’s campus. The W is known for its culturally diverse student body.
“We want to introduce our art and culture to this university we now call home. I think it also helps alleviate curiosity: people know where we're from but they don't necessarily know what we have to offer. This night is an opportunity to learn and celebrate,” said KC.
“We welcome everyone. If you would like to perform or know someone who would like to perform, we encourage that. It's a great way to celebrate diversity and it's a great excuse to wear our cultural garb as well.”
This event is free and open to the public. The community is encouraged to attend.
