Global Engagement Night Celebrates Oktoberfest

Students learned about German culture and history while celebrating Oktoberfest during the Global Ambassadors’ first Global Engagement Night.

Organized and run by our undergraduate student Global Ambassadors, Global Engagement Nights are casual events to facilitate cultural sharing and global learning. Each theme is picked by a Global Ambassador. These events are ideal for any student who is interested in learning about other cultures, meeting international students or other students interested in global engagement, and having fun.

During the recent event, attendees decorated gingerbread with icing to make necklaces, a common treat frequently found in the open-air markets during the Oktoberfest festivities in Germany.

The ambassadors have scheduled Global Engagement Nights for the rest of the semester:

  • Oct. 17: World Trivia
  • Nov. 13: Global Greetings and Languages
  • Dec. 5: Winter Market
