The International Student Organization recently held their first “Taste
of the World” event where members brought traditional food from their home
countries for students on campus to come and experience.

The International Student Organization also held “Fight for
Injustice” for students to come and listen to Serge Gasore, Author of My Day to Die, share about his life in
Rwanda during the genocide.
“People love hearing about other cultures and his story was
eye opening and emotional,” Ashley Wiggins accounting and economic major from
Charlotte, North Carolina said. “His story has inspired me to set up a trip to
Rwanda next summer and help the organization Rwanda Children which he started.”
