ISOC Application

Submission deadline: February 24, 2017

Members of ISOC organize special events with an international focus, such as the annual Meet & Greet gatherings and 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.  A sub-group of ISOC will also work with Orientation leaders to help plan, facilitate, and carry out fall and spring orientation for all new students. Members of the Orientation sub-group are required to return to campus a few days before fall and spring orientation officially begin in order to participate in training.

If you are chosen to be on ISOC, you will normally continue as a committee member until you graduate.  We especially encourage first-year international students to apply!

After you apply to be on ISOC, you will be contacted about the group interview, which will just before (or immediately following) March Break.  If you have questions, you may contact Donna Van Handle, Dean of International Students (
