Smith Around the World Fair

IMG_1651On April 18, Smith’s International Student Organization (ISO) organized a cultural fair for students. There were a variety of activities and cuisine.

ISO representatives were offering their fellow students samosas, baklava, and spring rolls, and even taught students how to make onigiri (Japanese rice balls), while the SC Masti Asian Fusion dancing group performed and WOZQ provided music throughout the event. ISO members also created beautiful henna designs for their peers.

From talking to ISO members like Sunny Jing ’16, it was apparent that ISO is very active on the Smith campus. The Smith Around the World fair was just one activity that brought Smith students together to appreciate all that the international students bring to the Smith community.

ISO’s cultural chair, Coco Zhang ’16 commented that ISO brings different cultures to Smith through cultural performances and inviting faculty to connect with international students. Coco likes how “ISO offers a place like home.” From the very beginning of their Smith careers, international students are brought together at International Students Preorientation (ISP). ISO is very much an extension of ISP so that throughout their time at Smith, international students can feel connected with others experiencing similar feelings about home and Smith.
