C of I readies for annual Cultural Show

The College of Idaho’s vibrant international student community will showcase a wide variety of music, dance and artistic performances during the annual Cultural Show on Dec. 4. The event, which is free and open to the public, begins at 7 p.m. in Jewett Auditorium on the C of I campus in Caldwell.  

This year’s Cultural Show is themed “Alice in Culture-Landia,” and will feature hosts Alice, the White Rabbit and the Mad Hatter taking the audience through the story of Alice in Wonderland in 25 acts ranging from the Japanese fisherman's dance around the Dodo's fire to a performance by the African Tweedledee and Tweedledum to Alice’s “trial by Haka.”

International students represent approximately 10 percent of the C of I student body, one of the highest international populations of any small college in the country. The C of I is home to students from more than 40 nations.
