International Student Organization

The International Student Organization (ISO) is an officially registered student organization at Penn State Altoona. The organization has a core mission of supporting international students as they learn to navigate their new country and campus. The organization provides opportunities for its members to share time and friendship with students from around the world. Organization membership is open to all Penn State Altoona students.

ISO has become an important component to the overall support provided to both international and domestic students at the college since its founding. The organization has been actively working with the Office of Student Affairs to create and support a variety of initiatives and programs both on and off campus including academic and educational workshops, special international focused meals in Port-Sky Cafe, shopping trips to the international markets in State College, and bus trips to cities such as Philadelphia and Washington D.C.
