ISA Programs Unite
Students of All Lands
The International Students Association's goal is better relations
among the University's nearly 1500 foreign students and their Ameri-
can counterparts.
Open to both American and foreign students, ISA features such
programs as a world's fair, an international week, lecture-discussion
series, smorgasbords, afternoon teas, dances and athletic events and
special orientation programs for foreign students.
ISA is run entirely by students and, to a great extent, is financed
by them and by its programs. Besides operating its own activities,
ISA coordinates those of the various nationality groups on campus
and represents foreign students in issues which involve their interests.
The ISA president is an ex-officio member of Student Govern-
ment Council.
ISA projects include the following:
-A world's fair held annually in cooperation with the Michigan
Union. Nationality clubs display cultural wares and present numerous
variety shows at this event.
-The Monte Carlo Ball, an all-campus dance each spring.
-Lecture-discussion programs on matters of international in-
terest. Last year ISA, working with the Union, sponsored a series of
lectures on the political and cultural images of various nations.
-ISA co-operates with other campus groups to sponsor Inter-
national Week, during which a variety of programs are held to gen-
erate greater awareness of the world among students.
-International smorgasbord.
-Social events such as mixers-with foreign dances-at the be-
ginning of each semester, special functions and picnics and open teas
every Thursday afternoon at the International Center.
-Sports, centering around matches and tournaments among for-
eign students.
-A foreign student orientation program, planned and carried out
with the International Center, which includes mixers, tours, seminars
and other activities.
ISA membership is open to any student-domestic or foreign-
for a $1 fee. Members will be able to serve on the many committees
which plan and carry out ISA activities.
ISA senior officers for 1964-65 are Yee C. Chen, president; Mary
E. VandeWater, executive vice-president and James Jones, adminis-
trative vice-president.
Regular members of ISA committees are eligible to petition for
committee chairmanships and later for senior offices.
Representatives at the International Center or the ISA offices
in the Student Activities Building will take applications for member-
