The International Student Life Office within the Division of Student Affairs strives to serve as "An Archway to UGA" for international students as well as "An Archway to the World" for those seeking an international experience within the University and Athens communities. ISL offers numerous events, programs, and services that support international students as well as promote internationalization on the UGA campus including: orientation for new and transfer international students, a weekly coffee hour during the fall and spring semesters, international festivals, a peer mentor program, social and cultural opportunities to meet other students within the UGA community, cultural events, organizational advisement for thirty international and multinational groups, personal and crisis counseling/referral, and leadership development opportunities for both U.S. and international students. ISL programs and services provide cultural and educational opportunities for international and domestic students to interact and share their cultures with the University and Athens communities. Additionally, by volunteering and/or serving as a student leader with the ISL office, UGA students have the unique opportunity to develop intercultural leadership skills within an international setting. Please contact the office for more information about specific events, leadership opportunities, as well as how to get involved with ISL.

Mission: International Student Life enhances international awareness for both U.S. and international students through innovative programs and nearly 30 student organizations, as well as offers services to international students including orientation, non-resident tax assistance, and cultural programming.

Hello everyone! I'm working on my PhD in the Dept. of Lifelong Education, Administration and Policy. I'm currently conducting interviews for a project in qualitative research on MMORPGs (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games). In case there are any current/former World of Warcraft (or similar games) players here and who won't mind sitting through a 45 minute interview, could you please ping back to me? Thanks! :) **Food and drinks on me! :D
Hi everyone! I recently returned to Athens from China where I spent the summer hosting English corners. I met so many great friends through doing this, and I really enjoyed leading English corners! I would love to host some here in Athens once a week (for free of course), so if anyone is interested in being in an English corner, please message me!
