The Right Choice for Your Success

Cultural Cafes

students from Bangladesh

These events highlight different countries that WIU students come from.  Two to three times each semester, a student or group of students representatives from various countries offer us a glimpse into their country over a weekday lunch hour.  

Authentic cuisine from the country being presented is served to all those in attendance, as well.  Cultural Cafes are a great opportunity for international students to share information on their home country’s culture and a chance for the campus community to learn about different countries and cuisines of the world.

Cultural Cafe presenters are not limited strictly to international students, though.  Anyone with expertise on a country or culture other than the US is welcome to present. If you would like to be a Cultural Café presenter, please contact
