Willimantic, Conn. - The Intercultural Center at Eastern Connecticut State University will host a day-long cultural event celebrating diversity at Eastern. The event will be held from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Nov. 8 in the Betty R. Tipton Room of the Student Center. The public is invited. Admission is free.
The purpose of the multicultural celebration is to build relationships between Eastern students, faculty, staff and the public. Students are encouraged to bring a flag of the country from which they and their families have come from. The event will also include a cultural exhibit that explores diversity at Eastern.
The celebration will also pair students from clubs, organizations and sports teams with members of dance teams to formulate a two-to three-minute dance routine. The students will pick a genre of dance the week prior to the event.
The Intercultural Center focuses on creating awareness and appreciation for diversity and improving the academic experience and success of multicultural, international, national exchange and commuter students.
