International students bring unique cultural backgrounds to Mississippi College, but their artistic talents and skills usually remain hidden. The International Festival gives students the chance to share this specific aspect of themselves and their culture with the Mississippi College community.
Although the Office of Global Education hosts various events throughout the year, honoring international holidays and promoting fellowship among students, the International Festival is its only performance-oriented event. It is also the largest international event on campus. Many members of the MC, Jackson, and Clinton communities attend the festival, gaining appreciation for the abundance of multicultural talent and skill present at Mississippi College.
