- Aahuti & Lay's truly "global" fusion dance performance
- Yu's heartfelt love ballad dedicated to her boyfriend an ocean away
- A high energy performance by our IESC Peer Guides in Celebration of the program's 25th Anniversary
- Beautiful instrumental performances by Nick, Ahmed, Lauren, Jimmy & Mari
- Creative original poetry by Frida including a sweet poem dedicated to a special someone in the room
- Awesome group performances by WELC, KUDA, and the Acapella Project
- A surprise "Happy Birthday" song for Activity Coordinator Othman
- Impressive solo dance performances by Darren and Hashini
- Amazing vocal performances by Jesse, Mikayla, & Del plus a perfect duet by Jimmy & Karen (and a surprise performance by Anne-Maude!)
and last but not least....
- A memorable and bitter-sweet finale performance by Alec Sherman- his last time taking the stage as a Western student

Congratulations to Peer Guide Starfish Award winners Minami and Karen, #GlobalWesternU Photo Contest winners Nick & Rachel, and all of our raffle door prize winners! We can't wait until the next Western Goes Global Cultural Showcase event in November!
