This event will take place in person in Holcombe Hall.
USA Day is an opportunity to introduce students to the diversity of the US. All students are welcome as participants, but we especially hope that international students and scholars will attend this event to learn more about specific states from a personal view of someone who is from there or has lived there for a significant amount of time.
Presenters for USA Day will create a “cultural table” of their state. It can have photos, maps, clothing, food items, games , souvenirs, or other appropriate props – be creative!
We are also looking for a few presenters to demonstrate or teach a dance that is common in the US!
An organizational meeting will take place one week before on April 6, from 3:30 - 4:30 PM.
