USC has students from all around the world and the International Education Week at USC is helping students celebrate global diversity. This week, the global community at USC is celebrating diversity by emphasizing on the benefits of international education and exchange throughout the world. Hence, their theme ‘Empowering Youth Through International Education’.

The IEW’s aim is to promote global study and it is being held till Nov 18. During the IEW, students can take part in various activities being held across campus. They are offering a lot of international programming like foreign film screenings, international cooking lessons, latin dance and a photography contest. One can also interact with the international exchange students at USC.

The activity that caught my eye was their “Around the World in 60 Minutes.” This event will take place on Nov 18 and will see the participation of fourth and fifth graders from the 32nd Street School near campus. USC students will represent countries like India, China and France and teach the kids about their different cultures, languages and countries. I think there can be no better way to reach out to the community than having representatives from different countries empowering the youth.

USC students also volunteered to dress up in their traditional attire and let people know more about their culture. They also volunteered to offer free henna tattoos. We also got free sushi and boba milk tea at the opening ceremony on Nov 14. Their closing celebration is the Great Diversity Carnival that will be on Nov 18 at the Engineering Quad where they are going to have a lot of games, free food and exciting performances. So before that, check out their schedule on the OIS website and try to attend any of the fun activities that they are offering.
