Transcript CULTURE cmm\ experience foreign traditions UH housed a number of organizations who focused on sharing their cultures with the rest of the University. In order to help these groups stay on their feet, the Council of Ethnic Organizations (CEO) was formed, ensuring that such important student groups would have proper funding and opportunity to participate in campus life. CEOs main goal was to make students aware of the deeper meaning behind some of the traditions they experienced every day. "You have to look beyond the surface," said senior sports administration / health major Apollo Woods, the assistant director of CEO. Throughout the year, CEO held many different events to showcase the diversity of the campus. They sponsored Diversity Week, during which they held a variety of activities to bring students in to learn about other cultures. They also hosted Food and Culture Nights, as well as THANK YOU Senior finance and accounting major Asia Jones finished his performance at the CEO Open Mic Night, which gave students the chance to share their culture in their own way.

In addition to their annual activities, CEO tried this year to look more closely at some of the most important traditions of the various ethnic groups on school. They sponsored the public celebration of many traditional festivals from different cultures. "We want students to be able to see what is really behind some of the practices they see on campus. They need to go beyond what they might have gotten from the media;' said Woods. The funding allocated to the ethnic organizations came from student fees, so CEO was particular about their criteria for funding. They only funded programs which went to benefit the whole of the UH population. The groups efforts were rewarded with excellent attendance at their many events, and the student body was able to better understand the wide array of cultures represented on campus. -Ashley Grubbs t| 521 Organizations GROOVY Several students at the CEO Culture Night performed a traditional dance.
