The Student Heritage Alliance Council presented a cultural diversity celebration at the Memorial Union on Friday.

The celebration of knowledge and fun activities helped raise cultural awareness for those who attended, and included a multitude of different groups on campus.

Some of the groups in attendance included the Asian Student Association, the Capoeira Club, the Muslim Student Association and the International Student Association.

Judy Coburn-Harris, working on her master’s degree in rehabilitation counseling, enjoyed coming out and seeing friends. “I wanted to see some of the people I know here in the international groups,” she said, smiling.

Second-year new media student Hayeon Kim, secretary of ASA, was one of the many students responsible for organizing the event.

“This was a really good chance for the ASA to let people know about Asian culture. This is one four biggest events throughout the year. I’m happy to meet people and introduce our culture,” Kim said.

ASA President Enyin Wu was happy with the attendance.

“It was really fun to talk with a lot of people with different cultures. Anyone that stopped by had a lot of fun and learned a lot of different stuff,” Wu said.
