Students from more than sixty countries gathered recently to celebrate their heritage at the University of South Florida International Festival. The event exposed students to music, culture, games and food from around the world – we tell you how on University Beat on WUSF TV.
Roger Brindley, University of South Florida Vice Provost & Associate Vice President of USF World, says it's extremely important for the school to reach out to its international students and make them feel at home through events like the International Festival.
Megan Westerman, who graduated from the University of South Florida in 2009, performed with her martial arts group at the recent International Festival. Afterwards, she talked about what she learned at USF about foreign countries, particularly China, and what the university did to help foster her curiosity and learning about foreign lands.
