IDay strikes again!

On the 15th of April, the 11th International Day (iDay) is held once again! IDay is the biggest event of International Student Association (ISA) and we want to welcome all of you to join us! The purpose of iDay is to promote cultural integration because there are lots of students at LiU from different countries in the world and it would be great if we all get to know a bit of each others cultures!

Last year, students and embassies from more than 26 countries participated in iDay. We want to create an opportunity for everyone to exchange culture with others, make friends and mostly importantly to have fun! Although it was a huge success last year we would like to beat that record this time and make iDay even bigger! You can be a part of it this year and make it possible! It doesn't matter where you're from or whether you are a student, employee, research personnel, etc. as long as you are part of LiU, cause EVERYBODY is welcomed!

Wanna participate in iDay 2016? Read more about it here!
