Host a CulturalFest Expo Booth
CulturalFest celebrates the diversity and talent of the international community on our campus and in our region. This annual FIUTS community event welcomes thousands of globally-minded visitors of all ages and backgrounds to the University of Washington for cultural exploration and learning. UW students, faculty, staff, and alumni, apply to host a cultural booth at the International Expo (priority deadline December 17)
This Fall, international and domestic students at UW had the unique opportunity to participate in FIUTS' intercultural group friendship program: FIUTS Connections. Small groups of students met throughout Fall Quarter to practice intercultural communication, explore Seattle together and make new friends. Each small team of students was lead by two FIUTS student facilitators who planned events and outings for their team. In addition to the team outings, FIUTS hosted activities for all the groups of friends to intermingle, such as a global potluck and making gingerbread houses. FIUTS Connections was a great way for international students to explore Seattle with locals, and for domestic students to meet the international student community and learn about new cultures. Thank you to all of the FIUTS Connections facilitators and participants! You truly helped make this program a success!Read more...
