Moraine Park celebrates International Education Week!

Students and staff were exposed to a variety of cultural experiences this week and last week in celebration of International Education Week! Moraine Park is participating in the nationwide effort to celebrate the benefits of international education.  This year the activities at our College centered around two trips, one to Jamaica and one to Morocco, being offered this spring through Moraine Park’s International Education program.  
Last week students and staff got to taste Jamaican cuisine and listen to Jamaican music at the Taste of Jamaica events held at all three campuses. Students from the Multicultural Club were also available to share information about the upcoming trip to study abroad trip to Jamaica. During the trip students will be participating in service learning in healthcare, education, sustainable construction and renewable energy aiming to provide hands-on learning. Students will also be collecting school supplies to take with them to support the Blue Mountain Project in rural Jamaica. Make sure to drop any extra supplies you have in the boxes at the Beaver Dam and Fond du Lac campuses!
There was also a Moroccan cooking demonstration earlier this week where students, staff and community members got to sample Moroccan cuisine and learn more about the study abroad trip to Morocco this spring. If you or anyone you know is interested in the trip make sure to visit or contact Tom Endejan at

In addition to the activities around campus, our International Education program recently ran a Travel Photo Contest! Make sure to check out the winning photos on International Education’s Facebook Page.
I hope you all got a chance to enjoy the festivities! Thank you again for tuning into my blog. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to leave them below.
