International Education Week offers multicultural engagement
This week is International Education Week on campus. Each day will feature a different ICE event hosted by the Office of International Programs, meant to inform and enrich students' understanding of other cultures.
On Monday, Breaking the Stereotype featured international students speaking about the stereotypes associated with their countries and how they contrast with reality.
Today, November 5, Dating Across Cultures will explore the difficulties and bonuses of dating outside one's culture and will take place in Penland room 106 from 5-6 p.m.
Tomorrow, November 6, the topic of discussion will be the massive cultural importance of the sport we call soccer at an event titled "Soccer for Dummies." This event takes place from 5:30-6:30 p.m. in Pacer Crossings 131 and is followed directly by the men's soccer match against Francis Marion.
On Thursday, a cooking demonstration will show students how to make a lentil curry. Because of limited space, you must reserve your spot for this event by emailing LizD@usca.edu.
Friday will be an opportunity for students to experience aspects of different cultures without leaving the Student Activity Center. Students will be able to learn to fold origami, taste authentic Jamaican food and get a henna tattoo for a small fee.
This week offers students a variety of ways to engage with other cultures, many of which are represented by students attending USC Aiken.
