About the Society

The International Student Society (ISS) is a society where every creed, race, and religion finds commonality, where opinions can be expressed without prejudice, where diversities will be honored and no student will be diminished, dismissed or disrespected for their differences. We encourage members to bring a piece of their nation with them.
