The Hiram community came together to celebrate diversity and culture at the annual Intercultural Forum Dinner and Show on Feb. 28, 2015. The Intercultural Forum student club hosts the event each year, to showcase the many countries and cultures from which Hiram College students come.

To begin the evening, students helped AVI chefs (Hiram’s food service partners) prepare a spectacular dinner featuring ethnic cuisine. The dinner was followed by a show, featuring music and dance from West Africa, Greece, Burma, Bhutan, Brazil and the United States. Students also presented Frank Bowman, associate director of international admission, with the Cebulla Award, for his service to international students at Hiram College.

“The ultimate goal of Intercultural Forum is to not show that there are different people in this world, but that we can all come together as one despite individual differences,” said IF President Stephen Yim ’15, an economics major from Paraguay. “Everyone knows a smile when they see one.”
