in News/SCSU News by

Over 200 people gathered in Atwood Mall at SCSU on Tuesday evening for the #StCloudUNITED event, just three short days after the attacks at Crossroads Center by previous SCSU student, Dahir Adan. The idea for the event came after the Somali Student Association contacted Student Government on Monday morning, wanting to collaborate on a peaceful celebration in light of the recent occurrences. “We didn’t know what kind of event we wanted,” Randy Olson, Vice President of Student Government said. “But this is just about unity. It’s about building a bridge where I think people didn’t think there was one.” Olsen said numerous organizations were happy to support the event, as well as community leaders. Among the leaders was SCSU Interim President, Ashish Vaidya, who spoke proudly of the student leaders who organized the rally, as well as those gathered in Atwood Mall. “We are a family, a community, and we…

in Opinion by

Most of us work with people in one way or another, whether it is a Fortune 500 company, a non-profit or a student organization on a college campus.

Cafes bring people of different cultures together at SCSU

in International/News/SCSU News by

Many SCSU students are aware of the big cultural events that go on in the Atwood Ballroom occasionally, of which groups of international students get together and share about their culture. This typically includes performances in native dress, food, and music. But what happens for the smaller populations of international students who want to share their culture? Sponsored by the Student Government Association, the International Student Association (ISA) puts together an event called a Cultural Café. It is a free event that is open to all members of the St. Cloud community. This opportunity is very similar to the ballroom culture nights, but on a smaller scale. It allows for students to come and share a brief presentation on their country and culture, as well as offering some food from their country to those in attendance. Disappointed that you missed this week? Not to worry, Cultural Café takes place every…
