Culture and Traditions
Tour of the Globe is always a learning experience for visitors and guests. This year’s theme explored literature and stories from different countries. Guests built an international book list with each country they visited.
As always, trying new foods was a crowd favorite. Students prepared some of their favorite dishes to represent their countries. Some, like Agnessa from Ukraine, had help from back home. She video chatted with her mother to make sure her recipe turned out just like her mom’s.
International Education Week at Missouri State
We’re proud to offer Tour of the Globe as an annual event at Missouri State as part of International Education Week. Exchanging culture with the Missouri State and Springfield communities is a top priority for International Programs and an important part of the Missouri State experience.
