The scene is just a snapshot of the International Festival, the largest and one of the most anticipated campus events, sponsored annually by Guilford’s International Club. The 2019 event was a spectacular array of multiculturalism and community. More than 20 nations were represented by Guilford students during this event, each with a table showcasing significant aspects of a particular culture.
“The International Festival was awesome because I got to try a lot of food, learn about different cultures, play games, and watch students perform traditional dances,” says first-year student Haydyn Foulke. “The beautiful weather added to the fun, and it was a great afternoon for all involved. I especially loved the food from Nepal!”
From Palestine to Japan to Ghana to Ecuador, all of the participants had the potential to expand their worldview. There was even an opportunity to fill out a “passport,” which provided different tasks at specific tables around the event.
