This past fall, Rolla residents joined the Missouri S&T community for a celebration of the cultural diversity that makes the town unique. The sixth annual Celebration of Nations, held in downtown Rolla on Sept. 26, began with a Parade of Nations featuring flags from approximately 80 countries — all of which are represented in the S&T student body — as well as themed floats, marching bands and community entries. After the parade, visitors sampled international cuisine, created multicultural arts and crafts, and enjoyed cultural exhibits and performances.
