Come Celebrate Different Cultures!

WHEN:   April 2021 
TIME:     5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

International Night is an opportunity for the community to join in celebrating different cultures on campus and within our local area. It is also a way for the Western Wyoming Community College International Club to fundraise in order to support its future events. 

This year Western is home to international students from Japan, New Zealand, Mexico, Georgia, and several African countries, who participate in the International Club on campus.“We enjoy sharing our culture with the students and community. The variety of cultural offerings from different countries makes it a unique cultural experience,” said Yumeka Shibata, International Student Club President (2019-2020) at Western.

This event is open to the public. There is a suggested donation of $5, seniors and children under the age of six are free. All proceeds go to the International Club on campus. Refreshments will be served. For more information or questions regarding this event, please contact Sue Fahlsing at sfahlsing@westernwyoming.edu or 307-382-1726.                                                                                                     ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Western is proud to host international students from across the globe on its campus, and those students are eager to share their music and native costumes during this annual spring event. During and following the culinary portion of the event, students present a talent show in which they perform songs, dance, and sing as a representation of their native countries. The event concludes with a fashion show featuring cultural apparel from around the world.

Rock Springs Wyoming has a long tradition of diversity, often referred to as the city of 56 nationalities. That tradition of creating a diverse community continued when Western Wyoming Community College was founded in 1959, and over the years Western has been host to citizens of 67 countries. 

Western continues to work hard to provide a caring and supportive educational environment to citizens from across the globe. Our strong international program acquaints students with the diversity of Wyoming and our region. Often these students stay to become productive citizens of Wyoming.
