It’s International Week at Mason!

Mason is excited to celebrate its thirty-eighth International Week, which began on Friday, April 5 and will continue through Sunday, April 14. This week-long celebration is an opportunity for students from over 118 countries represented here at Mason to come together to showcase their different cultures through various programs and activities.

International Programs and Services, Student Involvement, Registered Student Organizations, academic programs, and other campus units sponsor several International Week events including an iWeek parade, culture nights, and the highly anticipated dance competition! Students, families, and community members are welcome to enjoy the international cuisine, music, lectures, and dance featured during the week.

International Week is one of the most colorful and energetic times on campus. Students plan for months to host their events and even longer to prepare their dance routines for the competition. The talent of our students always impresses their audiences, and we highly encourage you and your student to attend as many events as possible.
