Once a month, Southwestern honors one of the many different cultures represented by its diverse student body. Students from each region prepare a dinner of unique foods common to their country for their peers to experience.
At the beginning of the evening the students present cultural information about their country, followed by entertainment. Recently, a group of Korean students lead by student body president Mark Song presented the Korean Dinner, which included a dance performance and a special video message made especially for the students of Southwestern from Korea's top pop stars, "Brown Eyed Girls".
