Since 1946, the Jones International House Program has given JSU students the opportunity to learn about other cultures and languages. The program has grown and evolved over time to create an extended family from all over the world. We offer 20 scholarship positions to international students and pair them with American roommates so that every student has the opportunity to learn about and love each other's cultures.

UN Day Tea 2019

The Jones International House Program's 2019 UN Day Tea was a major success! The students worked extremely hard, practicing day and night even during midterm exams in order to put on an amazing show for all of the guests. Their hard work and skills clearly showed, leaving every guest impressed. We are extremely proud of them. We are also so very grateful to the International Endowment Foundation Board of Directors for their continued support of this program, and for all of the alumni who show additional support and love for our students.

In October 1964, fifty-five (55) years ago this month, a building unlike any before on the JSU campus was dedicated by Dr. Woodrow Wilson Sayre, grandson of former President Woodrow Wilson with over 1,400 in attendance. The International House was built jointly with JSU and Endowment Foundation funding and has stood on the highest point on campus, predating most buildings at the university. The House provided a family environment and home to 40 International and American students each year, building on the diversity and hope for humankind that “Knowing one Another can lead to Loving one Another!” During the past 73 years, the House and program has attracted governors, US Senators and prominent international scholars and statesmen who have spoken to the need for peace and understanding with those IH students. After departing JSU, alumni of the program would then return to their homes around the world and spread the knowledge learned from each of their fellow members, professors and others they have met in the little corner of Alabama known as Jacksonville. Each October, the UN Day Tea reminds us that there is hope, and seeing the current members of the House pour out their culture and their love to those gathered, can renew the hope that this “Window on the World,” this experimental program started so long ago, can survive and endure.

International House alumnus Johnathon Wilkes was mentioned in this week's Red & White about his national accomplishments in wakeboarding! We are so proud of him and wish him continued success!

http://www.jsu.edu/news/articles/2019/09/undergrad--ranks-nationally-in-wakeboarding.html

Johnathon Wilkes is used to seeing the world upside down. That’s simply the natural perspective for a nationally ranked wakeboarding champion who spends much of his time spinning, flipping and flying through the air.
