The 2012 International Festival was a huge success. Taking place in the Blinken Auditorium and classrooms located at the TWC's Residential Academic Facility, the event lasted for 4 hours of fun and excitement. From great food to elaborative cultural performances, the International Festival allowed TWC interns from all over the world to exemplify what the meaning of diversity truly is.


10 international countries participated

  • Belgium

  • Mexico
