The Marshall University World Council organization and the Office of Intercultural Affairs is dedicated to offering stimulating intercultural learning experience so that we can grow and learn from one another. We are now preparing for our Second Culture Shock program. Last year’s program was simple extraordinary!

Culture Shock is an enlightening interactive experience that will enable people to grow and learn from the social and cultural experiences of others. We intend to showcase this lively “talk show” on campus to students, faculty and the community on Monday, April 1st from 6:30pm to 7:30 p.m. at the Memorial Student Center, Shawkey Dining Room. Our talk show host is the Carmen Mitzi-Sinnott, renowned performing artist.

World Council is now seeking interesting culturally diverse stories from 4-6 students that may have strong educational or multicultural awareness value to others. If selected, you will be ask to do a 2-3 minute presentation of your real life story during the program. We will provide all of the details for your preparation.

If selected as a Culture Shock participant, you will:
• Present your cultural experiences on our talk show stage
• Participate in an interactive program, responding to cultural and diversity related questions from the audience pertaining to your personal real-life experience
• Interact and have discussion with other Culture Shock speakers and the audience for the best learning experience possible.
