UNM OIPS ended yet another International Festival in style by holding their inaugural international fashion show in the SUB. The International Festival, held Thursday afternoon, featured myriad international fare, vendors and performers. Mavel Moreno, program manager at the Office of International Programs and Studies was quoted by UNM Today as saying, “The students are very excited about this event. They see it as an opportunity to give back to UNM by sharing aspects of their country and culture with the university community. Our office is fortunate to have them on campus and grateful for the support that the Student Affairs Division provides every year in recognition of our international population.”
