GWC’s Center for Global and Cultural Programs brought a world of culture to campus on Wednesday, November 14, at its International Festival.  The event kicked off the campus’s International Education Week, which raised cultural awareness through a celebration of music, dance, and initiative.

This year’s festival offered attendees cultural performances, study abroad booths, country booths hosted by international students, language lessons hosted by GWC faculty, internationally-connected GWC department booths, a U.S. Passport Application Station, international foods, prizes, and much more.
