Institute holding "spirit week" to celebrate anniversary

Established in 1977, UNT's Intensive English Language Institute (IELI) continues to help international students who want to develop their academic English and cultural skills. The institute serves between 350 and 400 international students from over 25 countries. Accredited by the Commission on English Language Program Accreditation since 2000, and reaccredited this year until 2025, IELI’s program graduates more than 150 students annually and sees over 75 percent of its graduates continue studying at UNT.

IELI is continually seeking ways to improve and evolve. That’s why, this year, to celebrate its 38th anniversary, IELI will be celebrating during International Education Week, Nov. 16-20, with its first “IELI Spirit Week.”

Inspired by American high school traditions, “IELI Spirit Week” will encourage students to show pride in the program with a week of themed days. The schedule of events are as follows:

  • Monday: “Class Color Day” IELI will kick off the week by having students wear their assigned level color.
  • Tuesday: “Twinning Tuesday” Students will wear the same outfit as a classmate.
  • Wednesday: “IELI Day” Students will wear their country’s traditional dress and participate in activities to help celebrate IELI’s 38th anniversary. At noon, IELI will have international foods, a photo booth, cupcakes, and more all at Marquis Hall. IELI will also be live streaming the activities on its official YouTube page, UNT IELI, to expand the festivities on an international scale.
  • Thursday: “Hats off to IELI” Students will put on their hats in honor of IELI’s program.
  • Friday: “Pajama Day” At the end of a long week, students will wear their pajamas and join IELI for a movie and popcorn day inside Marquis Hall.
