Students will celebrate the land and cultures of Malaysia with “Tanah Airku,” which means “my homeland,” at 6 p.m. Jan. 14 in the Atwood Memorial Center Ballroom.
Attendees will experience the beautiful and vibrant cultures of Malaysia presented by the Malaysian Student Association, said Jessie Gooi, organization president.
“Excitement, astonishment, bewilderment — that is what awaits you in this informal and relaxed atmosphere which allows you to indulge in the everyday diversity, culture, tradition and rhythm of Malaysia,” Gooi said. “Find entertaining performances, history and cuisine within one room.”
Cultural festivals are one way the university is providing a transformative educational experience for students to help prepare them to be global citizens at home, at work and in their communities. More than 1,000 students from 90-plus nations attend St. Cloud State, and cultural festivals give them an opportunity to share elements of their culture with the campus community.
