Parade of Flags

Parade of Flags is an event sponsored by ISFO every September. During this event, we invite elementary school children from all neighboring schools to come learn about countries from all over the world and to carry flags representing those countries. After listening to a brief presentation on different countries, the children then carry and leave flags on display for a few hours for everyone to enjoy at the Martin Luther King Commons area by the Holmes Student Center.

Our international students are invited to be a part of this event by becoming volunteers. Prior to the actual parade, international students share information about their proud country and answer any questions the school children may have. Any international student is warmly welcome to walk in the parade and to carry the flag of their country.

If you are interested in helping, please send an email to dgalbreath@niu.edu.

Please consider becoming involved in this multicultural experience. It is a remarkable learning opportunity for the school children and for you.
