Event Details

International Education is a nationwide initiative where we celebrate world cultures. This year’s theme is Myths & Stories.

International Education is about embracing inclusion and celebrating diversity and we have wonderful events in store for you! Former and current student participants will be available for you at the Imaginarium, the Taekwondo Demonstration, Intercultural Conflict Myths, and the Student Presentations (the artwork on this flyer is also from our student). We will also have a long awaited Nutraceutical Product Sale and the Irish Film Institute’s International Program (based in Dublin) is offering an opportunity for a special screening of their films.
