Students don t-shirts created as part of an International Education Week promotion.

For each language offered by Western Carolina University’s Modern Foreign Languages Department – Cherokee, French, German, Japanese and Spanish – students designed t-shirts centered on the theme “Many Languages, One World.”

More than 200 t-shirts were printed and the majority sold as part of a promotion held in connection with International Education Week in November. Part of the goal of the event was to promote international understanding and build support for international education exchange by encouraging development of programs that prepare Americans to live and work in a global environment.

Winning designs, which were selected by faculty, were created by Susan Gathers (Cherokee), Eric Dippold (French), Leela Livis and Scherita Cambridge (German), Taylor Speagle and Stephen Parton (Japanese), and Skylar Andrew (Spanish).
