Marshall University Intercultural Affairs invited 50 students to a barbeque Saturday at a farm in Wayne County.

Maurice Cooley, associate vice president of Intercultural Affairs, said his staff chose different ethnic groups on campus to provide a list of students to attend the event.

The purpose of the event is to gather intercultural students and give them the experience of seeing the country.

“We have a good group that will come together and socialize and learn from one another,” Cooley said.

Cooley said he hopes this event is the beginning of the World Council at Marshall.

“The world council will be a representation from the major nation culture groups at Marshall University,” Cooley said.

The World Council will act as an advisory group for the university facilitated by the Intercultural Affairs office on behalf of the minorities, and diverse cultures of campus.
