Cultural Café

KSU International Students Offer an Inside Look at Their Home Cultures at Cultural Cafés

To foster multicultural diversity and awareness on campus, International Student and Scholar Services at the Office of Global Education sponsors a series of Cultural Cafés each semester. Each month, students, faculty, and staff are invited to the informal and free Café that seeks to educate and familiarize them about the countries and cultures present within the KSU community. During each Cultural Café, presenters from different cultures give a short presentation. The presentations can include photographs and feature information about traditions and culture, government, history, geography, and food. In addition, the presenting students often include demonstrations of traditional songs or dances, while actively encouraging audience participation. 


Upcoming Cultural Cafés, Spring  2024

  • April 10, 2024- (Ballroom Balcony), 12:00 - 1:30 PM
    • Speakers from Kenya & Nigeria!


Visit the ISSS Instagram page for notifications about upcoming Cultural Cafés. Everyone is welcome to attend and they're always free.

Perhaps the most attractive and interesting feature of the Cultural Cafés are the traditional food dishes from the presenting cultures, which Café guests can enjoy during the intermission between the two presentations. The student presenters provide recipes for the dishes to University Dining Services, which then prepares the food. University Dining Services prides themselves in preparing and presenting the food in an authentic manner, so the presenters can offer attendees a “true taste of home.”
