International Education Week is an annual event held at schools throughout the country to celebrate the benefits of international education, international students and diversity. Utah State participated by organizing various events to highlight international students and their cultures, and students study abroad experiences. I was able to attend most of the events and I had a blast.
MR. & MISS INTERNATIONAL was the first event of the week. International and multicultural students presented their native culture through dress, talent and video to compete for the Mr. & Miss international title. We had participants representing the Dominican Republic, India, Saudi Arabia and the United States. Miss Dominican and Mr. India took the tile for Miss and Mr. International this year. All the participants did great showcasing their unique talents while representing their cultures.

DIWALI - "The Festival of Lights"
The Indian Student Association put together the annual 'Festival of Light' celebration through great performances, great food and games. This event was my favorite. I had borrowed an Indian outfit and got to pretend to be Indian for the night. Aside from that, I won prizes for wearing a traditional outfit to the event.
