Children to be offered glimpse of different cultures
Monday, November 3, 2008
ST. CLOUD, Minn. – St. Cloud State University’s International Student Association (ISA) is hosting a free event for children called “Passport to the World.” The cultural awareness event begins at 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 16, in the Atwood Ballroom and is open to the public.
“Passport to the World” will cultivate children’s understanding of other countries, while giving international students an opportunity to share their cultures with the community. During the event, participants will be able to visit interactive booths, created by international St. Cloud State students, designed to show how people of the world share common life experiences. Participants will receive a “passport” and a “visa” stamp from each booth they visit, including Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Latin America. There also will be live music and dance performances.
ISA assists St. Cloud State students in sharing their cultural backgrounds, facilitates interaction between international and American students, promotes the wellbeing of international students and strives to foster appreciation for different cultures.
