Celebrations for ONE Global Mizzou

For International Week, Mizzou’s  celebration was carried out with international students from all over the world participating in the Parade of Nations. Many students dressed in their countries traditional clothing while proudly carrying their flags around the University.  Celebration of our multicultural campus also included global music, sessions with students talking about their home country, and to top it all off, an International Bazaar that was held at the end of the week featuring cuisines from all around the world.

This is a decades old tradition that continues to grow. This year, Mizzou’s international student enrollment set a new record for total international students; 2,109 students  are represented from over 100 countries! This is a 3.3 percent increase in international student enrollment just from last year! These students make our campus more beautiful and rich and we are proud to say that we are ONE Global Mizzou!
