Global Unity at Gannon University (GU2) and the International Student Office organize a night filled with food, fun and culture every year known as International Night. This year it will be held March 28, 2015 in the Hammermill Center. This night is by far one of the most important cultural events at Gannon University with over 500+ attendees.

International Night is a truly unique event, which highlights globalization and emphasizes the unity between various cultures and nations to people within the Gannon and Erie communities. Guests are able to “travel” around the world to over 30+ countries through sampling a variety of cuisines and enjoying performances from talented students and staff. The purpose of International Night is to enlighten the community and share the wonderful gifts that individuals from our global community bring to campus.  We are a community filled with different traditions and backgrounds. By having this event, students and staff can proudly represent their nations and showcase their culture for others to see.

Citizens from the Erie community look forward to this event each year, and not only attend, but also collaborate with GU2 through performances and food offerings.  This event has been going on for over 25+ years and has become an event that is beloved by many.  It symbolizes the international community within Gannon and the importance they play at our university and the greater community.
