International Festival a Success
On April 11, UNCG hosted its 33rd Annual International Festival. It was a great success, drawing, faculty, students, and community members together to celebrate diverse countries of the world and to foster multicultural awareness. 

The Global Engagement QEP was among the exhibitors, along with its trademark inflatable globe. The QEP ran a “take your #selfiewiththeglobe” campaign, which encouraged International Festival participants to learn more about global engagement at UNCG.
