“We have an active international community at ULM. Our annual International Student Week highlights diversity, cultural exchange and Warhawk pride! We are excited to highlight our international students through song, dance, food and networking!” says DeVaria Hudson, Director of International Services and Programs.
All activities are free except the International Food Festival and the International Gala. The gala is free for the first 150 members, $10 for ULM domestic students, and $15 for faculty and staff. Tickets can be purchased at the International Student Services office in Sandel Hall, Suite 200. 
“There are so many opportunities for the community to become involved in International Student Week. Join us for the flag parade, Holi (Festival of Colors), soccer tournament and gala. I’m really looking forward to the food festival. Our international students are some of the best chefs this side of the bayou!” says Hudson.
