40th Anniversary of the UIS International Festival!

This past year, UIS celebrated the 40th International Festival.

Each year, hundreds of campus and community members have met for an international meal, programs and exhibits.  This year will be the 41st Annual International Festival and it will be held at The Recreation and Athletic Center (TRAC) on November 2, 2018 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

The event is made possible through the work of volunteers, who spent hours working as masters of ceremony, setting up the stage, greeting guests at the door, and cleaning up afterwards.
