USIU Hosts Annual Culture Week Event
By Lizbeth Kariuki
"This event feels like going to Blankets and Wine everyday, yet students are meant to be coming for class," commented an exhibitor during the USIU Culture week. Her comment was especially directed towards the dress code of USIU students. As a former USIU student, I found her comment hilarious and yet honestly speaking she was right. The atmosphere at the culture week which was held from 10th March to 13th March was that of excitement, fun and energy.
USIU is a campus that boasts of several cultures on campus - 86 to be exact. Therefore there was a lot on display and each community that had a display stand pulled out all the stops to make sure they stood out.
As this is a fashion blog, we cannot leave the fashion out. Students went the extra mile to dress in modern outfits with African influences in the print, design or cut. You can check out some of the highlights below:
If there is one event that brings the whole university together no matter the culture, it is definitely culture week, held every Spring semester.
