Selkirk College is hosting a special reunion on July 8, 9 and 10 at the Castlegar campus to celebrate 25 years of International Education.

"Over the years, our Kootenay communities have welcomed international students into their homes and their cities," says Vi Kalesnikoff, dean of community, corporate and international development.
