Cultural Diversity

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

- Mark Twain  

S&T students, scholars and their families come from more than 50 countries to experience American education and culture as well as to share their cultures with the S&T community. We at International Affairs strive to facilitate numerous cultural events on campus and in the community, offering a chance to everyone to get involved and make friends from around the world.

Learn about and join the festivities of the annual Celebration of Nations.

Celebration of Nations

Downtown Rolla comes alive for this area's largest multicultural event, featuring live music and dance; ethnic food, arts, crafts and displays; and plenty of fun for the kids!

Celebration of Nations gives area residents and Missouri S&T students a chance to showcase and celebrate the vibrant cultural diversity that makes Rolla unique to the Ozarks. It's a great time!
