Gordon State Welcomes Intercultural Education Week

Gordon State welcomes Intercultural Education Week, November 2-6. Students should first pick up a passport at IC 109 or IC 206, then view the displays on different countries and cultures at offices across campus, including McDonough. Instructions in the passport will tell students how to complete and enter for a drawing for the chance to be named GSC’s International Traveler on social media.

Students will scan a QR code at each display, which will take them to a brief video for that culture and the unique password to enter into their passports. Watch the virtual presentations on cultures, countries and the importance of Intercultural educations. These have been recorded by fellow students, faculty and friends of the college, all who come from varied backgrounds or have traveled to other lands.

The Highlander Dining Hall is once again joining us as Chef Sabrina will be featuring international dishes during the week with Asian flair on Monday, Irish dishes on Tuesday, French cuisine on Wednesday and Greek food on Thursday.
