ISA host Global Village Day

Wars, borders and politics crumbled to the ground as nations stood tall together for one day for the Global Village Day celebration in Falcon Square.

Nations united under one campus Monday, April 20 as the International Students Association Club hosted the Global Village Day event in an effort to offer students a worldwide perspective close to home.

Students and faculty strolled down Falcon Square learning about nations and its historical landmarks and getting free samples of the foods from each country.

The event spanned from the Americas and Asia to Europe and Africa.

ISA Records Coordinator Pablo Castilla said that the event was hosted to raise awareness of the other cultures.

He said, “ISA is trying to educate people about the diversity of the school.”

ICC Representative Lucero Herrera said that the event helps students know more about culture.

She said, “You get to meet new people and experience a new culture even though you can’t go there [countries].”

Aside from the international networking students were exposed to, students also had the chance to win money.

Charles Caguioa was handing out applications for a scholarship opportunity that ISA offered during the event.

He said, “ISA has a scholarship opportunity, you just write down what you learned based on the different booths of the countries that were here and I present them with a scholarship entry to turn it in.

“It’s going to be an opportunity to enter a drawing in order to win the prize.”

Caguioa said the scholarship worth was in the range of $100 to $250.

Applications will be viewed by ISA officials to determine who wins the scholarship.

The winner will then be emailed by the ISA to arrange the scholarship information.

About the Contributor
Sebastian Echeverry
Sebastian Echeverry, Editor in Chief
Hello all, my name is Sebastian Echeverry and I am the Editor-in-Chief for the fall 2015 semester. I have been working for the newspaper for four semesters now and slowly climbed the ranks from staff writer, to assistant sports editor, to sports editor, news/managing editor and finally the big cheese. My interest in journalism began when the twin towers fell on September 11 and the U.S. invaded Iraq. Global news coverage of airstrikes in Baghdad plagued the media and my father who served in the Colombian military would sit with me and explain what was going on to me. I was only eight years old at the time, so putting politics aside, I was only interested in how reporters on the front lines were seeing history unfold in front of them. Since then, I enjoyed reading and writing especially about global news. My first taste of research was for a high school paper about the militias still active in the U.S. I remember sipping some brew outside on the Coffee Bean's patio and being swallowed up by data, and liking it. I Currently have a part time job at Calvin Klein, my favorite sport is soccer and I love, Barcelona, Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund. I also enjoy watching hockey and my favorite team there is the Detroit Red Wings, yeah weird I know. I'm an easy person to approach and talk to and if you have story ideas let's get cracking on them! my email is: [email protected] My Twitter is: C_bass581141 My Instagram is: onlyc_bass5 and for giggles my snapchat is: onlyc_bass5
