The night of Dec. 4, 2015 was chilly, but South was a warm, bustling hub, brimming with excitement for Cultural Heritage Night. Cultural Heritage Night, which is overseen by the International Council, was filled with food, music, dance, fun, pride, and memories. Multiple cultural groups, including the African-American Culture Club, Asian Culture Club, and Hispanic Club, came together to celebrate the student body’s diverse heritages. Nearly 20 acts from American Sign Language to Chinese Yoyo performed everything from fan dances to martial arts stances. Many acts showcased fresh combinations of tradition and modernity. This year’s theme for the event was “masks,” and masks representing cultures from Mexico, Japan, Africa, Korea, India, and China accompanied each act in the background.
