Every year during the spring (May-July) and fall semesters (November-January), APU hosts a series of Multicultural Weeks. During each week the spotlight is put on one of the many countries and regions represented on campus and that country’s culture and language are introduced and celebrated through a range of student-led events and activities. Much of the management and planning of this event is handled by students who are not native to the featured country or region. A delicious array of traditional dishes is also available on the cafeteria menu in addition to traditional dance and music performances held throughout the campus and the Grand Show held on the final day of the week.
Footage of the Grand Show will be streamed live on the internet via Ustream. Please refer to the “Thai Week, Spring 2013”.Please be sure to tune in and enjoy the colorful performances by APU’s multilingual and multicultural students.
