Students learn how our cultures differ



CELEBRATING the cultural diversity of Southern Cross University's Tweed Gold Coast campus was the intention when staff, students members of the public got together for International Students Day last Friday.

More than 100 international students from 13 different countries shared their food and culture with other students, staff and members of the community.

International student adviser Heike Kerber claimed the Tweed Gold Coast Campus had a "unique mix of students".

"We wanted to celebrate that unique part of the campus and hope it will become an annual event," she said.

"Our International students, most of whom are studying for business degrees, come from all around the world."

Lecturer Trevor Lucas said the international students prepared a selection of their native food as well as put on dance, music and martial arts exhibitions. They also launched an international cookbook they had cobbled together.
