International Week flag raising event highlights OHIO's global story (VIDEO)


Ohio University kicked off its 48th annual International Week on Sunday, April 9. 

Designed to celebrate the cultural diversity OHIO's international community brings to the Bobcat family and the greater community as well as OHIO's rich international history, this year's International Week festivities included a new twist on an old tradition. On Monday, April 10, OHIO's International Student Union (ISU), as it does every year, posted flags along the brick walkways of the historic College Green on the Athens Campus. The flags represent the students from many nations around the world who attend Ohio University, and this year the ISU decided to include a special international breakfast to recognize the importance of the event.

Ohio University Communications and Marketing (UCM) was on hand to film the placing of the flags and to speak with some of OHIO's international students about what International Week means to them. Check out the video here
