International Students and Scholars

Every semester, Elizabethtown College opens its doors to international students from around the world. Studying side-by-side with their U.S. counterparts, these student ambassadors bring a new perspective and awareness to the College.

The Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS) offers a variety of support services for international students. We provide the visa support and immigration advising necessary for our non-immigrant F-1 and J-1 international population to remain part of our campus community.

OISS also seeks to internationalize the campus community by offering a variety of on-campus programming initiatives such as the International Leadership Team, International Education Week, and Tea at Three conversation series, in addition to a myriad of co-sponsored programs throughout the academic year. International students are also encouraged to take advantage of off-campus outings arranged by OISS to familiarize students with their host state/region.

International Students are also encouraged to get involved in clubs from all the officially registered Student Groups at Elizabethtown College. Popular international related groups include: Anime Club, International Club, Korean Pop Culture , Latinos Unidos, and Campus Diversity Advocates.
