IDays 2023

With over 101 countries and regions represented on campus, IDays presents the opportunity to bring the world and its perspectives into one place in a capacity that enriches the campus and the community. Culture is defined by all the senses and everything around us – through food, attire, music, dance, and so much more, we can experience the cultures of our community.

IDays empowers students, faculty and visitors with the space to express their experiences and perspectives and connect on a profoundly human level.

All events are FREE. However, some events may have limited space.
