International Student Organizations
International students are encouraged to join a student organization or even form a new one. International Student Organizations
are a good support structure that can help a student new to America deal with culture shock and provide a network of social friends. The International Organizations also provide a forum for students to celebrate their cultures, traditions and customs. These student organizations allow international students to share information about their homeland and provide a cross-cultural learning experience for the entire University community.
