International students bring unique cultural backgrounds to Mississippi College, but their artistic talents and skills usually remain hidden. The International Festival gives students the chance to share this specific aspect of themselves and their culture with the Mississippi College community.
Although the Office of Global Education hosts various events throughout the year, honoring international holidays and promoting fellowship among students, the International Festival is its only performance-oriented event. It is also the largest international event on campus. Many members of the MC, Jackson, and Clinton communities attend the festival, gaining appreciation for the abundance of multicultural talent and skill present at Mississippi College.
Held on the university's campus each spring, the International Festival will boast its eighth showing Friday April 10, 2015 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm in SWOR Auditorium. Cultural performances will include instrumental, vocal, and dance exhibitions, as well as a runway show that showcases traditional cultural attire. Afterward, the audience will be invited to a reception involving international food and drink. Tickets are $5 for staff, faculty, or students, and $10 for members of the community.
Students may participate in the performance portion of the event or the fashion show. Students who are interested in participating, should submit the appropriate application:
Applications should be submitted to Christina Bach by March 6. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
