International Students (NC State)

Students from all over the globe are right here in our neighborhood. Here are some ways you can love and serve international students on our local campuses:

  • CROSS-CULTURAL FRIENDSHIP:  Get together with an international student once a month for a meal or activity. Grab coffee, catch a movies, do some shopping, have them over for dinner. The possibilities are endless!  Participants must complete an application. Please see http://www.ncsu.edu/ois/programs/ifp.php  Note: This is not a homestay program and there is no financial obligation for participation.
  • DINNER: Provide an international student with the change to enjoy a meal in an American home and experience American culture. This is a one time commitment and meals occur all year long, so it is never too late to apply. An application is required for this program.  Applications can be found at http://www.ncsu.edu/ois/programs/break.php
  • ENGLISH CONVERSATION CLUB: Love to talk? So do Internationals! Help give them the chance to practice their English with native English speakers. There is no application or registration required.  We only ask that participants come ready to talk and have fun!  Groups meet on Tuesdays from 3:30 to 4:30 at the College of Textiles Port City Java on Centennial Campus, Thursdays from 3:30 to 4:30 at the College of Textiles Port City Java on Centennial Campus, and Fridays from 3:30 to 4:30 in Daniels Hall, Room 216 on North Campus. Contact the Office of International Services for more information at OIS@ncsu.edu or 919-515-2961.
  • TRANSPORTATION: Most internationals don't have personal transportation. You can help provide a ride for international students from the airport or to speaking engagements at local schools.  Contact the Office of International Services for more information at OIS@ncsu.edu or 919-515-2961.
  • HELP MOVE: Without their own vehicles, finding and moving furniture in a new country can be a challenge. Help move furniture for international students from the point of sale to their apartment on or near NC State’s campus.  Contact the Office of International Services for more information at OIS@ncsu.edu or 919-515-2961.
