2023 Festival Theme

Tuesday, February 14 - From IUI, with Love 

Celebrate Valentine's Day with intercultural postcards that celebrate the language diversity at IUI while offering loved ones and supporters back home a window into an international student's life.

Share your global love year-round

Even if you're not in the IUI Campus Center celebrating in person, you can still celebrate the festival in your own home year-round by using these free Zoom backgrounds for the 2023 IUI International Festival or creating one of the "best-of" recipes from our IUI community-submitted recipe book.
