SHEPHERDSTOWN, WV — Shepherd University’s Global Shepherd Students organization is hosting an International Culture Week March 19-23. The weeklong series of events, which are free and open to the public, grew out of the desire by Shepherd’s international students to share the culture of their home countries.

Throughout the week, tables with information focusing on regions of the world will be set up from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. in the Student Center Ram’s Den and Scarborough Library. Each day a different region will be highlighted and events will take place surrounding that region. Monday the focus will be on the Middle East and North Africa, Tuesday on Africa, Wednesday on the Americas, Thursday on Europe, and Friday on Asia and the Pacific.

Events scheduled for the week include:

Monday, March 19

Tuesday, March 20

Wednesday, March 21

Thursday, March 22

Friday, March 23
