A multicultural fashion show, an international film festival and a roundtable discussion are among the activities scheduled to take place during Fort Hays State University's third annual International Education Week, Nov. 17-21.

The week will officially begin with a proclamation at 9 a.m. Monday in the Dreiling Lobby in Sheridan Hall on the FHSU campus, followed by a reception.

The International Student Union will begin doing presentations in multiculturalism classes on campus that day and will continue throughout the week. A display of international items will be in the Memorial Union and in Forsyth Library and will remain all week.
