Last week I had the wonderful chance to experience the International Festival on campus and all I can say is WOW! I found it so interesting that many different people found this event to be something that they wanted to be a part of. There were many families who had brought their children, there were high school students, and college students, and many different representations of culture. I had no idea that this event was something that had become so important to the community! This was completely inspiring to me. I figured that it would be mostly OSUM and MTC students but that was not the case at all! It was mostly families! Do you know what this means for this campus!? It means that we are reaching out and inviting people of all ages to come and be a part of what we are, and they are taking us up on the offer! They are feeling comfortable here and wanting to come learn here! We are inspiring young learners to not be afraid to learn about those different than you. If that is not inspiring and encouraging, than I do not know what is!
