International Students Club
 
The International Students Club builds bridges between communities and cultivates a sense of harmony and solidarity among the many cultures on campus. The ISC was established with the purpose of bringing together international students from different walks of life and creating a home-away-from-home for them. By celebrating the uniqueness of each culture while emphasizing our shared values, our club helps students to adapt to life in the United States.
Discimus ut Serviamus: We learn so that we may serve
