International Culture Night commemorates global citizen

Fresno State’s 34th annual International Culture Night will be at 5:30 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 19, at the Satellite Student Union.

The theme for the free public commemoration highlights the global citizen and the generation of the future. Dress code requires traditional clothing or outfit inspired by any culture of the world.

The International Culture Night (ICN), a student-run event that has been a tradition of Fresno State for more than 30 years, “celebrates unity in diversity, and the importance of embracing culture as part of our identity but also as a way of connecting with others,” said Shady Nicolas Misaghi, coordinator of International Culture Night.

Presented by the International Student Services and Programs (ISSP), the celebration will include a variety of diverse performances, which highlight the cultural traditions represented by the more than 900 international students studying at Fresno State.

In addition to the International Fashion Show representing countries throughout the world and an international flag procession, performances from these nations are scheduled: Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Colombia, Ecuador, Iran, U.S.A., Mexico, Italy and India.
