UConn’s International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) hosted their annual event WorldFest on Saturday, March 25 in the Student Union Ballroom.

WorldFest is a longstanding tradition at UConn that acts as a venue for a variety cultural clubs and organizations to come together and share what they do.

“This is actually the 47th WorldFest that we’ve been doing,” Associate Director of ISSS, Arthur Galinat said. “It’s a long history of helping international students showcase their cultural, linguistic, ethnic heritage… We have students from all over the world who are doing amazing research and studying to become talented professionals who graduated from UConn, but then this is a chance to see a different side of them and to learn more about who they are and where they’re from.”
