ISO – International Student Organization - is the largest and most valuable association of international students currently studying in the USA. As a leader, ISO always stands at the service of international students who are currently studying in the USA. Founded in 1958, ISO strives to address the needs of international students. The objective of the organization has never changed: to ease the life of international students while away from their home country. This objective is fulfilled by providing international students with information which might help them get through their educational experience in easier and more affordable ways.
ISO - International Student Organization in the USA strives to assist foreign students attending institutions of higher learning in the USA who may not be familiar with the language, traditions, customs, laws and other non-academic aspects of their life.
Due to the high costs of acquiring higher education in the USA, ISO focuses on easing the financial burden from the back of international students. We hope to do this by providing exclusive offers and deals to the international student community as well as making information on scholarships and grants easily accessible. We hope to create a community for international students that will allow students to have the best experience during their studies in the US.
Throughout my days as an international student I realized my academic experience in the USA was an interesting, fulfilling and exciting one. I came to know of ISO when I was a foreign student (this was the term used for 'international students' at the time) in New York City. I joined ISO support staff and with time I became the chairman of the organization.
As the costs of higher education have risen, the burden to afford a higher education has fallen upon students. We hope to ease the burden by providing students with access to exclusive offers, scholarships, grants, and any other information that will help make their stay in the US easier.
How do we accomplish our objective?
We are able to assist students, by providing a space for international students to gather information, find scholarships, and have access to special offers. Our articles provide information and advice that help students understand US culture and traditions while the interactive and community aspects of our website allows students to create discussions and exchange ideas. This informational exchange creates a close knit community between international students in the US.
ISO - always on your side!
Our own experience led us to realize how important it is for international students to have somebody they can trust and talk to. ISO is determined on providing the best service to you. We offer students multi-lingual, dedicated customer service, so they will always feel comfortable contacting us.
