International Student Organization (ISO)

Our Mission

The International Student Organization is a student-led association that supports and connects international students from a wide variety of countries. We are dedicated to promoting diversity and to establishing international relationships with the Anderson University campus community. We sponsor events and cultural experiences that not only engage the international student community but the community as a whole.

The primary purpose of ISO is to engage in the development of activities and events that meet the needs of Anderson University's growing international community. We also interact with faculty, administration, staff as well as the local community to assist students in developing professional networking opportunities and friendships outside of the classroom.

Our doors are always open to those interested in global learning and who would like to get involved with our organization.

  • International Open House
  • International Education week
  • Cultural Dinners
  • Bowling Nights
  • Thanksgiving Dinner (International tradition)
