The MACC Multicultural Student Club (MCSC) is one of the most active social organizations at the College. Its goal is to integrate MACC’s International and American students’ cultural backgrounds. The club is a place where students come together to explore, understand, and appreciate different cultures and customs that underline a rich diversity. MCSC gets together on a regular basis for social gatherings, and also participates in the fall MACC International Education Week, and the spring International Fair.
Over the past months students and sponsors have met for dinner at the Japanese Steakhouse, Kobe. They have attended a Japanese drumming performance at the Moberly Municipal Auditorium and lobbied at International Education Day at the Missouri State Capital.
MACC Professor Laird Okie took five students to International Education Day. The students comprised two Americans, one from Ghana, one from Liberia, and one from China. The day began with a continental breakfast on the capitol steps. Then they observed the General Assembly in session. Lunch and speeches were held in the Harry Truman Office Building. They wrapped up the day with a tour of the capitol. Students are pictured in the lounge with the famous Thomas Hart Benton Murals.
All MACC American and International students are welcome to join MCSC and have an opportunity to interact with new cultures and learn from students from around the world.
