In the past, students have remarked that the conference is an important learning experience about culture and the diversity of MSU. Some have said:

  • “One thing I really liked about this was I got to learn how international students cope with culture shock.”
  • “I learned a lot about different cultures and how hard it is for people to adjust to a new place.”
  • “It was a way for people to share their ideas in a unique way. It was a great learning experience. I also loved the setup—it was easy to talk to each other and to watch the videos.”
  • “I liked how we got to see work of other students that are outside of our classes and topics I wouldn’t necessarily research on my own.”
