Cultural Events

Cultural Events Schedule

St. Cloud State University has had a long tradition of providing some incredible cultural programs that are well attended by the St. Cloud State Community and those from the surrounding area. The programs are planned, promoted and run almost entirely by students that have a strong desire to share their culture. Most cultural events include performances in their native dress, food, dance and music. There are approximately 16 to 18 major events held annually! These events help support and foster Atwood's core value of Creating a Student-Centered Community.
