Cross-Cultural Discussion Group

The Cross-Cultural Discussion Group provides a relaxing environment for students to share perspectives across different cultures on topics such as new year traditions, friendship and relationship building, communication styles and humor, etc. By joining the group, you will expand your worldview, make new friends, and enjoy fun conversations as a break from your busy study life. International snacks will also be provided!
