International students to show off talents

More than a dozen acts will take to the student centre stage at noon Tuesday, Nov. 12, to compete in the International Students Got Talent contest.

Judges will rate performances in dance, music, and more as students vie for cash prizes and glory.

The event grew out of an effort by the International Student Centre to address issues of isolation and belonging identified by UWindsor faculty and staff as among the top challenges facing international students.

“This is a great way for the campus community to learn more about international students and to see the variety of talents from across the world,” says the centre’s director, Beth Oakley.

Finalists were selected based on videos submitted by contestants. In addition to receiving $250 cash, the top act will be named on a plaque displayed in the International Student Centre.
