The ISSO regularly holds information sessions and programming throughout the year. Please check out our Facebook page and subscribe to our eNewsletter to follow our events and receive updates throughout the year.

International Student Preorientation (ISP)

International Student Preorientation happens each year in the week before all-student orientation at Smith. See our ISP section for more information.

Would you like to be an ISP Leader?

Each year ISSO hires about 15 returning students to act as ISP Leaders. We look for energetic, involved Smithies who will help us to execute programming and welcome our new students to campus. If you're interested in this role, please contact ISSO for more information. Applications will be available soon, and will be due in early March.

International Students Organization Day (IS Day)

ISSO collaborates with the International Students Organization (ISO) each year to put on our international food festival! This is a wonderful chance for our international student community to share favorite recipes from home with the campus.

Winter Break Programming

During Smith's Winter Recess, international students who have been on campus during fall semester may sign up to stay on campus while the college is officially closed.  Each year during this time, ISSO plans a few fun activities to encourage students to get out of their rooms and have fun!
