Our latest blog post comes from the new group of graduate assistants for the Office of Multicultural Programs! Look for a profile blog post for all of the new SAO graduate students soon.
The Multicultural Showcase and Mixer hosted by the Office of Multicultural Programs was a great success. Hosts and attendees alike, had a wonderful time. The event took place on September 9, 2013, in the student center. Student groups from all cultural backgrounds came together to meet their advisor, Ms. La-Tarri Canty, as well as the new graduate assistants: Christopher Espinoza, Onyinye Oriji, and Qingyi Yu.
Attendees enjoyed free food provided by the Office of Multicultural Programs, and a prize give-away. Winners of the give-away were awarded some great pieces of MIT swag from the campus bookstore, including t-shirts, bags, coffee cups, lanyards, key chains, a blanket, and a MIT flag. In addition to the give-away, the participants also a played a intense game of diversity BINGO which encouraged individuals to break out of their comfort zone and meet some new friends.
