Volunteer for the Multicultural Showcase

Millersville University’s Multicultural Showcase Committee is seeking your help!


The  Multicultural Showcase Committee is looking for interested international students to be information resources for this year’s Multicultural Showcase.

What is the Multicultural Showcase?

This is an event to help educate Millersville students on different cultures from around the world through entertainment, by using student/club presenters and educators, and sharing good food. Student organizations choose a country or culture to represent, setup a table with their country/culture and become part of the overall event. The showcase is on Nov 18th from 6-9pm in the SMC MPR. https://getinvolved.millersville.edu/organization/CSIL/calendar/details/668204 

This year’s theme is concentrating on countries represented by the students at MU. We hope to show the campus just how diverse Millersville’s population is!

How can you help/volunteer?

The committee is looking for interested students to be resources for the student organizations so that they can represent their country/culture as best as possible. If you are interested in assisting the committee to put on the best showcase possible and be part of something great at MU, please contact Adesola Adebakin, aaadebak@millersville.edu. Please let them know what country or culture you would like to help represent or which one you would like to help provide information for.

Thank you!

Share your Mother Tongue with MU Students

Do you want to share stories about your home culture? Would you like to meet current Millersville students studying French, German or Spanish? Are you interested in joining one of our language clubs?

Then consider attending one of the language club meetings!

Millersville University offers three languages; French, German and Spanish, and each department has their own student-run club for interested students. The language clubs are entirely organized by students, so the students decide what they want to talk about and do each week. This means that you can participate and give input as well, or just share stories about your local history and culture!

Club members include students of all language levels, from beginners just learning the language, to students that are near fluent. Clubs meet every week and plan events that allow other Millersville students to participate, such as having movie nights that show foreign films, cooking traditional food and teaching students about the culture and traditions of that country, and much more.

Language students are always interested in meeting the new international students, so why not stop by and say hello, introduce yourself, and make new friends!

Getting Involved on Campus

Are you interested in getting involved on campus? Want to join a sports team or be a part of a club?

Great because we want YOU to attend Organization Outbreak!

What is Organization Outbreak? Only the biggest gathering of campus clubs and organizations of the year! Our campus has a selection of 150+ student organizations to choose from that let you “Get Involved” with and explore what our campus has to offer.

The clubs and organizations range from academic and professional to spirituality focused and multicultural, allowing you to explore your interests and become involved with your fellow students. Joining a campus club or organization is a great way to meet Millersville students that share common interests and make lifelong friends. No matter what your interests are, there is a student organization for YOU.

If you would like to learn more about the clubs Millersville has to offer before the event, check out our Get Involved website where you can browse the list of clubs and learn a little more about what they are all about. Visit https://getinvolved.millersville.edu/ or click the ‘Get Involved’ Link on the right side of this page to learn more.

Do you play soccer? Are you interested in learning how to play American football? Maybe you like to play volleyball or run?

What better way to meet new friends and have fun being active than joining a club sport or participating in Millersville Intramural sports. Come to Organization Outbreak and meet some of the students that run our Millersville Intramural and Club Sports here on campus and learn how you can join a team or create your own team today!

If you missed the event on September 3rd, don’t worry! Head on over to Organization Outbreak at the Student Memorial Center (SMC) on Thursday, September 16th from 5:00pm to 7:00pm to see how you can join. The event will be held outside the SMC on the Promenade, and inside the SMC in the MPR room if it rains.
