Cultural Celebrations and Events


The celebration of different cultures represented at Central Michigan University is something the MASS office takes pride in. The opportunity to learn through panels, discussions, performances and food tasters is provided on a monthly basis throughout the year.

Want to get involved? Do you have an idea for an event? We would love to hear from you. MASS both appreciates and relies heavily on collective brainstorming and students' initiatives to make these programs a success.
