UCO celebrates Saudi student community


Special to The Sun

EDMOND — Music, food, traditional garb and various types of information were part of Saudi National Day on the University of Central Oklahoma campus.

More than 400 Saudi students call UCO home, making them the single largest international student population at the Edmond university. International students represent 8 percent of the overall student enrollment.

The University of Central Oklahoma’s Saudi Student Association invited the community to the event Monday in a Nigh University Center ballroom. The free event included a lunch of traditional Arabic food, Saudi singers, actors, fashion, a documentary about the country and prizes for guests.
