The event which was hosted by the United International Association brought together cultures from around the world with food, music, and presentations from various international student organizations.

International Gala Night was headlined by various International student organizations from ISU who all gave presentations about their organizations. President of the United International Association, Cosette Groisiller opened up the festivities with a speech about the event and why it is so special to the international community at ISU.

“Our goals with International Gala night is to provide the opportunity to all the diverse and ethnic RSO’s at ISU,” Groisller said. “(It helps) present what they are about and what kind of events that they represent and create throughout the year.”
