Other Ways to Get Involved
International Students Association (ISA)

ISA is a student organization at The University of North Carolina Greensboro (UNCG), with special interests in cultures and societies from around the world. Membership is open to all members of the student body, as the term "international" in its broadest sense is not restrictive to national origin. Click ISA to view their website.

Friday Fest

Each Friday, ISA sponsors a get together featuring a different country or culture. These gatherings involve food, music, dancing, presentations, and other entertainment, and are open to everyone. Interested students are welcome to host a Friday Fest featuring their culture or country of origin. For information you can click HERE. Or you can contact an ISA officer, or visit the ISA website.

I-House is located in the recently renovated Phillips-Hawkins Residence Hall. It is a residential community with an international twist.

Peer Advisor and Liason (PAL)

The PAL program matches incoming international students with UNCG students to help exchange students adjust to life at UNCG, and in the USA in general. PALs welcome exchange students to campus, assist with their adjustment to living at UNCG, help with registration and prepare them for the semester. All UNCG students are encouraged to apply, especially returning study abroad students, or those interested in studying abroad. For more information, click PAL.
