ST. CLOUD - St. Cloud State University hosted its annual Passport to the World gathering, an event that allows visitors to learn and experience different cultures all in one place.

Each participant receives a passport book in order to get a visa stamp from each booth they visit. Each booth represents a different country or culture in the world.

The event has been held since 1999 and is a big educational attraction for children and their families.

Nikhil Joshi, the President of the University International Students Association says the event also displays the diversity present at St. Cloud State.

"St. Cloud State is a very diverse campus, we do have a lot of countries that present here. Today we have 29 different countries."
