I went to the International Bazaar held on the south oval earlier this semester! They had the typical international student organizations out (ISA, ASA, VSA, etc.). I wish that more students who aren’t from those countries/continents would get involved with the organizations. I think there is this fear that you can’t participate or learn about something that isn’t a part of your life, and that is so not true! The best way for international learning is to share in one another’s cultures! I attempted to do the chopstick challenge where you have to pick up 15 little beans in 30 seconds and move them to a different dish and I totally failed. I think I moved about 8, which was apparently impressive for a white girl. I guess that just means it’s time to eat more asian food, I can’t complain about that. Anyways, I think there would be a bigger turn out for events like the International Bazaar if more cross-cultural learning took place OUTSIDE of the international studies department.
