International Student Organizing Committee (ISOC)

ISOC 2016-2017


Members of ISOC organize special events with an international focus, such as the annual Global Fest, that take place throughout the year.  Some of these events include discussions about what it is like to be an international student in the U.S., as well as conversations and networking workshops with international alumnae.  They also help plan, facilitate and carry out fall and spring orientation for new international students.

Committee members are required to return to campus a few days before fall and spring orientation officially begin. If you are chosen to be on ISOC, you will normally continue as a committee member until you graduate.

If you would like to know what ISOC is currently organizing, please subscribe to the ISOC Newsletter.  Also, please like ISOC's Facebook page and see what it's like to be part of this awesome group!

If you would like to apply to be on ISOC, there will be an online application form available in December. For more information: contact Donna Van Handle, Dean of International Students.
