Music, dance, art, literature, food: The Mount's International Language and Culture Festival had it all on April 3 as the University celebrated the variety of talents, cultures and traditions within the Mount Saint Mary’s community.

Highlights included a dancing and singing competition; presentations from international clubs and organizations on campus; an international fashion show; free lunch featuring a Korean menu; and global exhibits in The Circle, including calligraphy demonstrations and information about the Mount’s international exchange and Study Away programs.
