The group also participates in an open mic night, giving members an opportunity to express their culture through music and poetry. Embrace Club members attend dinners at various ethnic restaurants to experience aspects of other cultures. The group also takes part in a local student diversity leadership conference and members are invited to develop workshops within the conference. Embrace members can also apply for the annual International Student Diversity Leadership Conference. Costs associated with membership include: Embrace Club t-shirts ($15), dinners ($10-$12), and trip costs, which are determined by the level of activity, type of initiative, and transportation expenses.
