The 17th annual Cul­tural Night will take place on Novem­ber 16, 2013 from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM. This event remains the largest student-organized event on the UW-Superior cam­pus and is put on by the WSA club (World Stu­dent Asso­ci­a­tion). This event­ful night is described by its orga­niz­ers as a way to, “Cel­e­brate dif­fer­ences on cam­pus, raise mul­ti­cul­tural aware­ness, and build bridges among peo­ple from dif­fer­ent walks of life.” This event is open to stu­dents as well as the pub­lic, includ­ing an inter­na­tional din­ner and cul­tural show. The prices for the din­ner and show vary. A non-student for din­ner and the show is $15.00, a stu­dent for the din­ner and show is $9.00, chil­dren under 5 are $5.00, non-students for only the show are $10.00, and stu­dents for only the show are $5.00. The din­ner is in the Yel­low­jacket Union/YU Great Room from 5:00–7:00 PM and houses food from around the world, offer­ing every­one a chance to try unique food from dif­fer­ent cultures.

The cul­tural show takes place in the Thorpe Lan­g­ley Audi­to­rium in Old Main on the UW Supe­rior cam­pus last­ing from 7:00 PM to 9:00PM. The show begins with an inter­na­tional flag cer­e­mony, pre­sent­ing flags from all of the coun­tries rep­re­sented here at UW-Superior. The flags are gen­er­ally car­ried by stu­dents from the par­tic­u­lar coun­try by the flag they are hold­ing. A fash­ion show is included into the show as well, demon­strat­ing the tra­di­tional attire from select coun­tries. The remain­der of the show is filled with var­i­ous cul­tural per­for­mances includ­ing singing, danc­ing, and many other inter­est­ing tal­ents. So be sure to check out Cul­tural Night Novem­ber 16 at 5:00 PM, it is guar­an­teed to immerse you into a new world of cul­tural diver­sity and fill your night with entertainment.
