Lamar University will host its 5thannual International Cultural Festival, Saturday, November19, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Montagne Center.  

The free event, featuring international dance, dress, music and foods, will cap off International Education Week — a celebration of the many ways the world benefits from international education — Nov. 14 to 19.  

With informative videos, displays and presentations alongside performances and dishes, the festival will feature international students’ unique cultures and countries while fostering an appreciation of the merits of international education and celebrating Lamar’s international population. 

Over a thousand international students from countries including Bangladesh, China, India, Iran and Nepal will join one another and the domestic student body to showcase the idea of unity within diversity—and all unite under the same roof as Lamar Cardinals. 

All events during the International Education week, themed “Empowering Young People through International Education,” are free and open to the public. 

The Offices of Study Abroad, International Student Services, Diversity & Inclusion, the ReaudHonors College, Phi Beta Delta International Honors Society, the JoAnne Gay DishmanSchool of Nursing and the Department of English and Modern Languages will sponsor International Education Week 2016.
