    International Student Organization (ISO)

    The International Student Organization is dedicated to help international students at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse with their academic, social, and cultural development. The organization provides opportunities for students to expand their insight on different cultures of the world by participating in educating and strengthening UW-L campus students and La Crosse community members.

    La Crosse International Friendship Exchange (LIFE)

    La Crosse International Friendship Exchange is a social group that offers opportunities for American and International students to share interests, language, culture, and friendship on the UW-L campus, in the La Crosse community, and beyond. Members socialize in small, arranged groups and large group events.

    Some past events include: trips to cities in Wisconsin and surrounding states, picnics, game nights, bowling outings, cultural food nights, camping and hiking trips, football games, and more! 

    La Crosse Friends of International Students (LFIS)

    The mission of La Crosse Friends of International Students host families is to relate to their student(s) in order to help them and provide a window to American culture and values. Families occasionally invite the students into their homes for dinner; they might give a tour of La Crosse or take the students to a concert, county fair or any typical American event. Activities with students are entirely up to host families. The frequency of meetings is dependent on both parties' schedules.
