The International Student Organization (ISO) is designed to immerse international students in American culture and society while exposing American students to our international students and their fascinating cultures.
This organization promotes internationalization on campus and in the community while positively representing new and innovative perspectives.
ISO provides opportunities for UNCP and international students to travel within North Carolina and the US to gain a better insight into local and national cultures.
The ISO supports activities for UNCP students to make friends that will last a lifetime while ensuring a lasting legacy is left here on our campus.

Absolutely - and you should! If you are thinking of studying abroad, curious about other cultures, or are simply interested in meeting international students and making new friends, then this is the organization for you! There are weekly meetings, fundraising events, great trips and excursions, plus the opportunity to help plan and organize - and be part of - International Programs' Festival of Cultures in the fall.
Aside from the great fun that you will have, you will gain invaluable experiences - and skills - that will look terrific on your resume in our increasingly globalized economy. Consider, for example, the following short list:
Just imagine the advantages of having such experiences and skills not only on your resume, but (most importantly) being able to talk about them during a critical interview. It will surely set you apart from others, make you more memorable and (hopefully) help land you that great job that you really want.
