Oklahoma State University hosted the first Korean Night put on by the Korean Student Association on Sunday. For $10, anyone had the chance to experience traditional Korean food, watch a fashion show, and see some entertaining K-Pop performances.
Stacey Yo, president of KSA, organized the event in just 2 months. She and the members of KSA practiced every day for three weeks in preparation.
The result was fantastic. This night was full of great food, exceptional talent and plenty of information on Korean culture. Guests had the opportunity to receive prizes from different aspects of Korean culture, from jewelry boxes to photo frames.
While Stacey said the presence of OSU president Burns Hargis and Stillwater Mayor John Bartley made her and other performers a little nervous, she was happy to receive so much support from her community.
OSU officials have said their goal is to give every OSU student an international experience. For those who can’t study abroad, events like Korean Night are a great way to experience a new culture–while having loads of fun.
