Beyond Westchester is a multicultural initiative where international students are invited to tell the Westchester Community College community about what it’s like to live in their home country and enjoy delicious, authentic foods together. This campus-wide event is created three times every semester to highlight a different country and to give students the opportunity to expand their horizons beyond Westchester county. Beyond Westchester brings students together with fun and free food and celebrates our culturally diverse Westchester Community College community.
