3. United Khmer Students Culture Night 2017
What is Culture Night? It is a time for all the members to get involved and have fun while also discovering more about their culture and having the opportunity to share it with the community in one huge production (April 8. 2017 at Schoenberg Hall)! You DO NOT NEED ANY EXPERIENCE in acting, dancing, etc. 😉
DEADLINE TO SIGN UP:
Friday, November 4th @ MIDNIGHT
A modern take on the trans-generational transmission of trauma caused by the Khmer Rouge.
More details to come 😉
Classical (a.k.a. ‘robam’) Both genders are welcome!!
Traditional (usually involves props)
Modern (choreographed by members of UKS to modern pop/hip-hop songs)
Time commitment will depend on how many aspects of the show you decide to participate in, and how big of a role you would like to play. We will work around your schedule, however, so don’t worry about it getting in the way with other commitments!

4. United Khmer Students Internship 2016-2017
UKS Internship began as a tool to foster leadership and personal growth among our general members. Interns have the unique opportunity to work alongside UKS staff throughout the school year in various social, cultural and political programs. Internship is a good foundation for students interested in holding cultural organization positions; interns will learn technical skills and experience the various components that make up a cultural organization. We look forward to getting to know all of the applicants!
