Culture Celebration Week – Part I

This year’s Culture Celebration Week at HIU featured several events and projects that recognized the diversity of cultures, talents, and personal stories on our campus. Intercultural Leadership Council and ISP staff worked hard all semester to plan and bring these events to life. Here are some pictures from the week.

 The S.H.O.W.

At this café event, students showed off their talents through song, dance, spoken word, and artwork.

Gabriella is an amazing artist who documented her experience living and studying at Hope through art.



We also played some fun games from Mexico and Korea.

Loteria (Mexican bingo game) – Each box on the card has a picture with a word in Spanish. The first person to get all the pictures on their card called by the leader wins the game. Instead of “Bingo,” you yell “Loteria!”


닭싸움 (One-legged fight – literally translated “Chicken Fight) – This game turned out to be quite a bit more intense than we expected. You’re not supposed to use your arms, just your legs. The last person standing wins the game. Daniel Root was the ultimate winner at this round.


Chopsticks Race – Who can move all the beans from one plate to the other fastest?


Humans of Hope

Many of Hope’s students, faculty, and staff were featured on this wall along with their answers to interview questions which included “What is your biggest challenge right now?” “If you could give advice to a group of people, what would it be?” “What was the saddest moment of your life?” and “If you could do anything right now, no limitations, what would it be?”

Culture Celebration Week Buttons

These buttons were designed by DSU students and feature countries that are represented on our campus. Donations for these buttons went to support Missions of Hope International and its partner, which provides microfinance programs to the poor in Kenya.
