Culturescape, the annual signature event of ISA, is designed to educate the USF community about world cultures, with particular emphasis on the cultures represented at our school. Under the advisement of ISSS, Culturescape is planned, hosted, and presented by the USF international and domestic students.  During Culturescape, students share their culture through dance, song, instrumental performance, poetry, and artistic performance. The “after party” includes various ethnic foods to offer a sampling of the tastes of the world to our community.
