2014 International Night

Date posted: June 17, 2014

2014 International Night was a huge success!

International Night was a big success!  Hundreds of Bellevue College (BC) students, alumni, administrators, ISP staff, and friends from the community came together to celebrate our rich cultural diversity.

The International Student Association (iSA) and 50+ volunteers worked extremely hard, and it certainly paid off. The evening started out with a variety of delicious appetizers while guests socialized with friends and took photos artistically decorated by the volunteers. Flash Mob brought the fun and excitement to the entire auditorium to hype up the guests and set the tone for the evening.

Things really heated up when the professional Brazilian performers invited guests of all ages on stage to learn to dance the Samba. Everyone had a big smile on their faces and saw themselves come closer together through their own mistakes and laughter.

Two very talented Vietnamese students played the guitar and sang a beautiful song called “Hello, Vietnam”. One of the many highlights of the night was the “Parade of Nations,” where students proudly wore their traditional clothing to represent and share their cultural heritage. Throughout the evening, raffle tickets were drawn, which added further to the excitement of the night. Some of the generous donations included a Samsung Galaxy tablet, a free one-night stay at the Bellevue Marriott Hotel with dinner, many gift baskets, tennis lessons, and more.

Special heartfelt thanks to Student Programs, BC Foundation, Events and Facilities, Public Safety, ISP staff, and all of our generous donors.

 A job well done, iSA!  Keep up your good work!!
