Held each spring semester, the International Gala is a variety performance of traditional dances, music, song, and fashion from the many cultures represented within Clark’s student body. It ends off with a beautiful flag ceremony representing the flags of all the countries represented at Clark. More than 2000 people attended last year, including students, alumni, family, faculty, administrative heads and staff, members of the Worcester community, and students from the surrounding schools and colleges. It is a free event open to all members of the Worcester and Clark community. Zito h Ellada!!!
