The International Students Association (ISA) recently hosted an International Dinner at the Intercultural Affairs House. Students enjoyed Thai food, conversation and a Henna tattoo workshop.
Ato Bentsi-Enchill ’17, of Accra, Ghana, attended the dinner. “It is always great to see students come out to recognize and celebrate the diversity that exists on campus. More importanty, being conscious that the Colleges have more to offer beyond Geneva always counts,” he says.
The ISA’s mission is to provide a forum for the discussion and celebration of international diversity and multiculturalism on campus. Its activities, which are open to all members of the HWS community, foster the interaction of individuals from varied cultural backgrounds while assuring the presence of international programming on campus. The programming aims to raise awareness about global issues while allowing international students to share their traditions and heritage with members of the community.
The ISA also recently hosted a “Social Scene” talk. The discussion focused on the Colleges’ social environment and what it means to the various cultural groups on campus.
The ISA meets weekly at Intercultural Affairs and hosts monthly International Dinners. For more information, see the group’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/HWSISA
