Each year, the Office of Global Education hosts the Celebration of Culture: an event that promotes the wide array of cultures that are represented here at Mississippi College. Student leaders don traditional cultural attire and organize a table to represent their nation, with traditional food, folk art, celebratory videos and photos, games, and souvenirs. In under two hours, students are able to "travel the world" and learn about the cultural diversity represented in the student body at MC.
Each year, 300 plus attendees grow in their knowledge of different cultures from hearing descriptions and seeing artifacts, but they also are able to learn from tasting different foods. Each table has samples of traditional food items. Everything from Chinese candy to a full Saudi Arabian meals are served to students who want to taste the authentic food prepared by their international peers.
