The International Studies Student Club (ISSC) is a student organization intended for international studies majors, minors and graduate students, but is open to all University of Wyoming students. The ISSC organizes and sponsors many activities during the year that bring greater awareness and understanding of international issues to the UW campus. It also shows that student organizations give students the opportunity to be involved in domestic and international events that teach them how to work as a team as well as on an individual basis, and help them to improve their organizational and administrative skills.
Getting involved in campus organizations and activities will teach you new skills, give you an opportunity to meet new people and make a difference in people's lives. The ISSC is a great way to get involved on campus and participate in something that promotes global awareness.
Activities during the 2014/2015 academic year include:
Conversational Partner Program
Fundraiser for the Froeign Language Institute in Haiti (it is the goal to raise $ 3,400 to pay two year's worth of rent for the teaching facilities)
Thanksgiving potluck for international students
Trip to the Conference on World Affairs in Boulder, CO
With all these wonderful projects, the student club has raised exceptional awareness on and off campus, and for the second time received the 2013/14 Outstanding Registered Student Organization Awards amongst over 200 RSOs at the University of Wyoming.
