The Center for International Education will be celebrating Study Abroad  & Cultural Fair on September 11, 2014.  Our mission is to promote internalization of our campus by exploring the cultures around the world through the arts, foods, and sports, as well as learning about ways to experience these cultures locally and by studying abroad.

This event is organized to celebrate cultures around the world and to encourage UNC students to experience those cultures by traveling abroad. In order to achieve this goal of cultural exchange and appreciation, the World Expo will display tables and presentations representing native countries of our international students (YOU!), UNC and community clubs and organizations and study abroad representatives. We would like for you to make your table interactive, in which you can present pictures, traditional clothing, videos, writing, traditional materials, games and so on from your home country. Specific table setup will be up to the presenting group; however, at the end of the day there will be prizes for the best table presentations. We would also like to invite those interested to do formal presentations (dancing, sports, etc.) in front of the expo as a whole, and possibly be willing to teach interested students in the allotted time.

This event will be held on Thursday, September 11th on the West Lawn of University Center from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm. We hope that you can join us in participating in the Cultural Fair and sharing your country, club or organization with the UNC student body, faculty and staff.  If this is something you would like to participate in, please complete the participation form and  submit it to Center for International Education Office no later than Friday, September 5th, 2014.
