Home to one of earth's oldest civilizations, the Indus Valley Civilization, Pakistan features a host of ancient ruins and culture combined with modern living and technology.

All faculty, staff and students are invited to join the opening Global Insights program for Spring 2023, featuring Ramsha Siddiqui, graduate student, MBA business analytics, on Feb. 21, at 11:30 a.m., in the Rose Room, Brennan Hall, Rm. 509. The luncheon presentation will feature Pakistani cultural cuisine. Registration is required. Register for the Global Insights Pakistan presentation.

Mount Godwin-Austen, better known as K2, the world's second highest peak, towers over the mountainous region of Pakistan at 28,251 feet. The country, about the twice the size of California, is primarily a Muslim state. Pakistan holds over 207 million people living in terrain between the highest peaks and sea level; most reside along the Indus River Valley. 

Siddiqui will discuss the cultural differences between Pakistan and the United States, especially with regard to food, and will touch upon public services such as medical facilities.

"I'd definitely advise people to try the food of Pakistan and (visit) Karachi, which is also the hub of trade and business in Pakistan," said Siddiqui, referencing the most active coastal city that is responsible for more than half than Gross Domestic Product of the southeast Asian country.

Siddiqui said she misses the nightlife, restaurants, her family, and the rights and freedom she had there.

"I would highly recommend a visit to the northern areas of Pakistan. They are replete with scenic beauty and raw and untampered natural resources...all Pakistanis go there during the summer vacations and winter breaks," said Siddiqui.

Please join Siddiqui as she shares photos of Pakistan's natural wonders, and its rich history and culture.

This program is being offered by the Office of Global Education, the Cultural Centers, Residence Life and the Office of Equity and Diversity. For more information, please contact or 570-941-4841.
