On June 1-2, EARTH University opened its doors to more than 10,000 visitors for the EARTH Multicultural Fair. Organized and led by EARTH students, professors and staff, visitors came to eat traditional food from around the world, enjoy cultural presentations and dances and purchase goods from student artisans and vendors. As an act of solidarity, every year the entire student body organizes and participates in this incredible cultural experience in order to raise funds so that every fourth-year student can bring at least one family member to their graduation in December.
This annual event celebrates our spirit of global citizenry and our commitment to providing a unique environment for students to learn from each other and grow into world leaders. With students from 29 countries, it is no wonder that Spanish is a non-native language for approximately 15 percent of our student body.
Gifts like yours have helped to invest in intercultural and language programs at EARTH University that build the global network of young adults committed to fostering peace and prosperity.
Issa Daniela Secaira Mancia, a third year student from Guatemala, frames the importance of this unique aspect of EARTH, “Having classmates and professors from more than 25 countries has been the most enriching experience so far, as it has made me grow a lot as a person. Being part of a multicultural community like EARTH allows you to exchange cultures, ideas, points of view and knowledge, which is mutually beneficial. It also gives you the opportunity to expand your vision and learn more about the reality of many countries. In addition, you form such strong bonds that you end up with an extended global family.”
Students are enriched at EARTH, not only from our innovative educational model but also by an environment that celebrates each other’s cultures! We invite you to learn more about Global Citizenry by following the link below. Thank you for your support!
