Celebrating the International Spirit Every Year (Not Just Every Four)

Creating Solutions for a Healthier World was the theme for this year’s I-Week which brought together well over 60 different events across campus. Here is a look at the week that was, just in case you missed some of the awesomeness that happened around campus.

About the Author

When I am not busy with engineering school, I love painting in abstracts. I am also a huge movie buff and will watch anything with zombies in it.

I would like to share stories that are personal and reflective of the great community we have built here at the U of A. My experience at the university so far has brought forward a tremendous amount of personal growth, and I can’t wait to help share the wonderful stories and student experiences of this amazing university.
