Meet new people and make friends! The International Student Center (ISC) hosts fun annual events to help you get connected and enjoy campus and local amenities. Events may change each semester, so check back often for the latest information.

Student retreat

Kick off the new school year with a retreat! In late August, the ISC takes a trip to Rolling Hills Park, located about 9 miles south of campus. This event is a great way for new and returning students to get to know each other. We provide transportation to the park and the day is filled with fun games, sports, great food, and of course, a visit to the waterpark!  

International career workshop series

In partnership with Career Transitions, we hold workshops during the Fall semester to help you navigate the American job field. We cover topics such as:

  • Creating a winning resume
  • Interviewing success strategies
  • Marketing yourself for the job you want

International Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving is an annual American holiday observed on the 4th Thursday in November, when family and friends gather for a meal and remember all we have to be grateful for. Join your international friends to celebrate Thanksgiving with dinner, dancing, and karaoke in Garrett’s Restaurant. You are encouraged to provide a dish for the event from your home country.

Diversity Extravaganza

Celebrate the diversity of our campus community at the Diversity Extravaganza, hosted by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. This event features food from local international restaurants, a talent show with singing and dancing, and a fashion show where students of different cultures proudly wear their traditional dress.
