Annual International Festival Comes to a Colorful Close at Duquesne

Duquesne University students, faculty and staff, in keeping with the University’s mission, will celebrate its rich diversity during the Spring International Festival.


The celebration will culminate with the annual hallmark event, ISO (International Student Organization) Night, on Thursday, March 31, at 5 p.m. in the Union Ballroom.

This event will feature a colorful, international twist on dinner, dancing, fashion and performances.

This year’s theme is The Sun Shines on All Shores.

“ISO Night is an institution on campus, going back over 30 years at Duquesne,” said Joe DeCrosta, director of the Office of International Programs, which sponsors the events. “As the pinnacle of activities during the Spring International Festival, ISO Night is a time for student cultural organizations to share the rich diversity that resides on campus, and to celebrate one of Duquesne’s longstanding strengths.”
