No ratings yet. Log in to rate.

RGU’s annual event celebrating diversity at the university entered full swing yesterday, with an Exhibition of Nations event. The week long ORGUMN event is intended to showcase diversity at campus, and highlight the contributions that international students bring to RGU, and to the Granite City’s community. RGU students come not only from the entire UK, but also from Europe, and beyond.

On Tuesday, students manned stalls that reflected their country’s culture, as Sir Ian Wood Building’s amphitheatre around them found itself decked out with a variety of National Flags.

With a brief interlude today, a special talk is scheduled for tomorrow. The guest speaker, Grace Dorris, shall be reflecting on the obstacles international students face when coming to study abroad, and how to overcome the associated cultural and language barriers.

The week ends with an International Football World Cup Tournament, which is scheduled to take place at the Aberdeen Sports Village. (All information is available on the One RGU, Many Nations’ Facebook event.)

In addition to all this, food outlets across the campus are going to have on their menus, food from across the world – so keep your eyes peeled, and tastebuds ready, for that.
