International Week 2008
April 28 – May 2
The International Student Association proudly presents its 36th annual International Week on the Southern Oregon University campus.
From April 28 to May 2, Southern Oregon University will be overrun by an international atmosphere. Many students have worked hard to present and share their respective culture from their home country with the whole community.
A variety of events have been scheduled this year, so there should be something for everyone. The week will be busy with workshops, international movie nights, a panel discussion and a soccer game. The celebration will brilliantly culminate with the 36th International Show on Friday May 2. All events are free and open to the public.
