ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Students and Teachers at Albany State University are celebrating International Education week. The mission is to help students become global citizens.
Students and professors set up displays in the gym representing their cultures. They were able to learn about how the rest of the world works.
Learning about different cultures is important. "I think it's very important for our students, to know the fast pace change and the development," ASU professor Jinchun Zhou.
"Today we'll reflect on the need for students to acquire multicultural competence," said Executive Director of International Studies Dr. Osakwe.
Cultural Explosion is part of International Education week. "We're reflecting on studying abroad. We also are projecting and promoting so students can be aware," said Osakwe.
A number of countries are represented. "We have China, India, Nigeria and the Netherlands," said Osakwe.
Students studying here are glad to share their culture with others. "It means a lot to me. My country is full of colors, festivals and celebrations," said ASU student Khushboo Patel.
SHe has been in America for about six years, but still says there's no place like home. "Even though I've been here for six years, I can't leave my culture back in my country," said Patel.
While studying here, she's noticed that students from America know little about the rest of the world. "A lot of Americans have never been to a country but their own. It's important for them to know about other cultures," said Patel.
Part of her culture is some of the Gods worshiped. "His name is Nugrash, and he symbolizes the dancing form of god," said Patel.
International education week is helping students at ASU get a glimpse at how others live all over the world. Today the celebration continues with other events.
From 2:00pm to 4:00pm their having an African Drum and Dance Workshop. Later tonight an international pageant fashion show.
Friday morning, ASU Global ambassadors will visit schools in Dougherty County to teach students about other cultures.
