Club Showcase: International Student Organization

Posted by iusbvision on January 25, 2007

Home can be anywhere ranging from a city block up to 10,000  miles or more and round-trip airfare away from campus.  These people are better known as the exchange students at IUSB and the answer to their accommodating needs is the International Student Organization (ISO).

Through the ISO students of various countries can submerge themselves in American culture at IUSB as well as teach the campus about their own culture in the process.

The ISO collaborates with a number of clubs on campus—making them an active club with numerous campus and community events.  Such events include Potlucks throughout the year as well as the popular community-recognized International Food Fest held in the spring.

For those students who are miles away from family and friends, the ISO is there to help everyone feel welcome.  Club President, Felix Marquez states that “the purpose of [the ISO] is to help international students participate in campus activities and create opportunities to show their different cultures to fellow students at IUSB and the South Bend community”.

The ISO is open to all students at IUSB. To contact the ISO, email Club President, Felix Marquez, at iso@iusb.edu, or stop by the office located in the Gunther and Barbara Jordan International Center at 1722 Hildreth St. (5 houses from Schurz Library).
