BSOS International Week

The BSOS Dean's Student Advisory Council (DSAC) will host BSOS International Week on February 27 to March 3, 2017, primarily aimed at undergraduate students from across campus, but all are welcome. The most up-to-date information is on Facebook at

This will be a week of cultural, academic, and informative events all celebrating the international backgrounds and diverse cultures that make our community special.

The kick-off event for BSOS International Week is Cultural Explosion on Monday, February 27th, an evening of music and dance performances that represent the range of international flavor and talent of students from across campus. DSAC partnered with the Global Communities Student Association on this event. The DSAC organizing committee received grants for just over $2000 that will cover the total cost of the kick-off event.
