Supporting one of the College’s four pillars of intercultural understanding, the International Student Organization (ISO) seeks students of all nationalities to create a meaningful intercultural experience at Ramapo. They meet regularly to plan activities and events for both members of the club and the entire Ramapo community. The club sponsors a variety of activities, such as international dinner nights, films, and lectures, as well as off-campus trips to various national landmarks and other places of cultural interest. Each year they host International Student Week, which consists of workshops and symposia. A campus-wide luncheon, The International Food Festival, features international cuisine and entertainment and has become one of the most popular events held at Ramapo. The club also participates in communtiy service activities throughout the school year.
The International Student Organization (ISO) is a social organization that bridges the divide between international and native students. This organization is based on different cultures and perspectives that allow individuals to enhance their knowledge on cultures around the world. ISO prides itself on diversity, mutual respect and tolerance of race, culture, religion, and sexual orientation. Our main goal is to unify cultural diversity among the Ramapo community.
To become a member of the International Student Organization, all you need do is register your name with the org. in our office or by simply sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and attend weekly meetings (It’s that simple) and we will all have a wonderful time together.
