College conducting annual International Week March 31-April 4

Marietta College’s Department of Modern Languages, Office of Education Abroad, and Office of Diversity and Inclusion will host International Week from Monday, March 31 to Friday, April 4. 

International Week, held on the Marietta College campus since 1995, is a collaboration among campus departments and organizations to reinforce the College’s commitment to internationalization. This year, the Department of Political Science, Department of Music, Physician Assistant Program and the Physical Plant are sponsoring some of the events. 

Dr. Ena C. Vulor, Chair of the Department of Modern Languages, is excited about the participation of organizations across campus in International Week.

“I am particularly happy to see that International Week is no longer a one-department show,” Vulor says. “The compilation of events highlighting various cultures from around the world remains a collaboration among a number of campus programs and departments. This seems to suggest that many outside the Department of Modern Languages share the same desire to see more events with international focus on our campus.”

The International Week schedule includes student presentations, guest speakers, music, drama, food and photo contests that highlight cultures around the world. The specific events are as follows:
