International Education Week 2012

Although we celebrate international education every day in our office, there is one week in particular that will be celebrated across the globe. International Education Week is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education that encourages international exchange through a variety of events. The theme for this year’s 13th annual event is “International Education: Striving for a Healthier Future Worldwide.”

So what’s up on our campus?

* Getting Started Info Session
* Scholarship Essay Workshop
* Find the Money: Financial Aid & Scholarship session
* Bollywood Movie Night

The School of Business is also hosting two events for Global Entrepreneurship Week, and the Newman Catholic Center is hosting their annual Hunger Banquet  to create awareness about world hunger.
