SOCIAL AND CULTURAL OPPORTUNITIES

Throughout the year various events showcase the wide range of cultural expression that can be found at Iowa Wesleyan University. The Homecoming Parade features a special “international float” featuring many students dressed in traditional cultural attire.

The International Fair held in the fall is presented by Iowa Wesleyan international students and allows the campus community to enjoy food, traditional clothing, informational displays and performances from around the world!

The International Student Club also provides students with the opportunity to organize events throughout the academic year that share unique cultural celebrations and holidays.
