UIUC’s Zagloba visits wpna
Written by Peter Nicieja on October 27, 2020
Energetic student leaders from Zagloba, a Polish club from the University of Illinois in Urbana Champaign, came to the WPNA studios to share what they do best: spread Polish culture on campus.
I can write all about the club here (something that would take hours), but I’d rather let the members speak for the club itself.
One of the most notable aspects of Zagloba is there annual Culture Showcase. Food, dancing, music–it has all of that and more. Unfortunately, the club won’t be putting on a show this year due to COVID-19, but here’s hoping it’ll return next year.
The most surprising aspect to me was that the club consists of several students who do not speak Polish or have any Polish decent in their family. These are students from other cultures who are just interested in learning more about what Polish culture is all about and try some pierogi. Zagloba is a great way for Polish culture to spread beyond just the Polish community and into the lives of other students.
Nicole, Marzena, and Krzysztof’s passion for the club was evident, leading me to believe it’s in great hands and will thrive in the future. More details about Zagloba can be found in our full podcast-interview here.
