This special RC offers unique events, such as sport competitions, local excursions, and cultural events showcasing the sights, sounds and tastes of the nations represented by its members.​  

Every semester, Carmichael RC holds special events such as Bingo Night, Carmichael Cupid, Carmichael Breakfast, Festival of Nations (only fall semester), End of Semester Banquet, and more! Some events also provide a platform for international students to showcase their culture through performances or exhibitions. Consider bringing something from back home to share here!
