One of the goals of the Kearney International Center is to encourage students from around the world to share their culture, ideas, and talents with one another. Each year international student groups organize and present a variety of events and programs. Each of these is a wonderful opportunity for cultural enrichment and entertainment.

We invite you to take a look at both the Nationality Nights and the Mankato Area International Festival.

All of the Minnesota State Mankato campus events contribute the dynamic campus culture.
