The International Student Organization (ISO)

The International Student Organization has been promoting international awareness at Buffalo State for over 53 years now. It is comprised of over 60 members. ISO builds a relaxed, global minded atmosphere and makes possible the blending of international cultures through the events and activities they conduct every year. It creates an environment that offers a unique opportunity for exchange and cultural interaction among all students attending Buffalo State.

ISO is affiliated with the United Students Government and its events are funded through mandatory student activity fees.

ISO sponsors approximately five events every year including Cultural events such as Latin-American and Caribbean Cultural Night, Asian-European Cultural Night and African and Middle East Cultural Night are part of the fall semester. Each event features ethnic food, music dance, guest speakers, performances by the members of ISO, and sharing of cultural experiences. Our annual event, Cultural Fiesta, is part of the spring semester, it is the biggest cultural event of its own kind and has made us very successful in spreading internationalization into the Western New York community.

Meetings are held on Friday afternoons at 3:00 pm. All are invited to attend.
