In a dazzling celebration of diversity, SIM recently hosted the much-anticipated International Student Night (ISN), transforming our campus into a vibrant kaleidoscope of cultures, including 170 dedicated crew members and performers. With a turnout of 330 participants, ISN stood as a testament to the rich cultural mosaic within our student community. 

The main theme, Masquerade inspired students to showcase their Sunday best outfits, creating a sea of elegance. The planning committee had designed beautifully crafted, customized cultural masks – a unique touch that represented the cultural richness of each ISC. During the Fashion Model walk, different ISCs showcased diverse cultural wear and providing a visual feast.

The highlight of the evening was the mesmerizing performance by the SIM Malaysian Community’s Festive Drums troupe. With thundering with energy, the 13 drums reverberated through the venue, captivating the audience, and setting the tone for an unforgettable night. International student clubs (ISCs) further contributed to the cultural symphony with captivating dancing and singing performances, each act infused with a distinct cultural flavour. Majority described the performances as eccentric, dedicated and well-organised.

The gastronomic offerings were equally diverse, featuring a mix of Chinese and northern and southern Indian cuisines. From the aromatic butter chicken to the freshly baked naan, every dish served was a culinary journey, allowing attendees to savour the flavours of different cultures.

ISN not only provided a cultural feast for the taste buds and eyes but also created lasting memories. A photobooth allowed students to capture the joyous moments of the night on polaroids, ensuring that the magic of ISN could be cherished for years to come.

International Student Night was a celebration of unity in diversity – a night where students from around the globe came together to share their traditions, artistry, and cuisine. It was about inclusivity and representation. ISN 2023 was not just a night—it was a journey around the world, right here on SIM campus.
