Explore global cuisine, culture at International Day Nov. 18

International Day at Colorado School of Mines

Colorado School of Mines has long attracted the best and brightest STEM students from around the world. Today, more than 70 countries are represented on campus – a fact that will be celebrated Nov. 18 at International Day, a fun-filled evening of global cuisine, cultural exhibits and performances. 

Hosted by the International Student Council and International Office, International Day is one of the biggest campus events of the year. The global celebration kicks off at 4:30 p.m. in the Green Center’s Friedhoff Hall with food samples from nearly two dozen countries – try Egyptian koshari, Malaysian chicken satay, French crepes and more. Food tickets are $1 each, with most samples ranging from 1 to 4 tickets. Cultural exhibits will also be set up around the hall, showcasing unique customs, artwork, clothing and artifacts.

The festivities will continue at 7 p.m. with a free culture show in the Green Center’s Bunker Auditorium. Student performances will include traditional music, fashion shows and dancing. Both the food sampling and culture show are open to the public. 

About 700 international students are currently enrolled at Mines for undergraduate and graduate studies, representing 11.5 percent of the total student body.
