Walters State's International Festival began in 2004. The first festival was organized by student Betsy Hurst and supported by Sarah Risdahl, an advisor and (now retired) associate professor of advanced and developmental education, English. Betsy wanted to share her Costa Rican culture and learn about the backgrounds of other students. The second festival was organized by the International Club and new club sponsor Michelle Mitrik, associate professor of Spanish. The festival has grown each year. Now, the festival features speakers and a variety of talent, including both local and nationally-known individuals and groups. Vendors bring gift items and food representing many countries. The festival is open to the community and draws more than 1,000 people each year.

The International Festival is organized by the International Club. Global Connections and the International Fee, a student-led initiative, fund the festival. Global Connections organizes international programming throughout the year to better prepare students to participate in the global economy.

For more information, contact Michelle Mitrik.
