Many events will occur throughout the week, including a “Different Concepts of Freedom ” roundtable, a conversation over bagels, a cultural coffee break, and a choir performance. Students are also invited to try churros at a small business that supports environmental and social causes.
On Tuesday, March 28, SLU-Madrid faculty, staff and students will participate in the campus’ most well-known event: the Atlas Week International Party. The community will represent their respective countries and regions by bringing home-cooked treats and wearing traditional dress.
