Every March, USIU-Africa celebrates the annual Culture Week event, a week-long cultural festival that celebrates cultural diversity in the university community.

During the three-day festival, the university has a unique opportunity to experience the food, dress, music and language of the various cultures represented at the University. 

Below are some of the highlights from the three-day event:
