International Center (IC) events during Multicultural Week, February 8th – 12th.

Around the World in 10 Tables
As a part of the Multicultural Week, international students from China, Nicaragua, Poland, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Taiwan, and Vietnam had the opportunity to share their history, culture, food, and talents with SMU’s community. This event was a great experience for administrators, faculty, and domestic students to learn about different cultures without traveling abroad.

International students welcomed faculty, administrators, and domestic students at the door offering them a tour of the IC, delicious appetizers, and drinks.  In addition, attendees also had the opportunity to learn more about the ESL/ELB programs, Study Abroad, and International Student Services.  The IC thanks everyone for attending this event.
