The International Student Organization has been promoting international awareness at Buffalo State College for over 50 years now. It comprises of over 200 members from over 50 countries worldwide. ISO builds a relaxed, worldly atmosphere and makes possible the blending of global cultures through the events and activities they conduct every year. It creates an environment that offers a unique opportunity for exchange and cultural interaction among all students attending Buffalo State.
ISO sponsors approximately five events every year. Cultural events such as Latin-American and Caribbean Cultural Night, Asian-European Cultural Night and African and Middle East Cultural Night are part of the fall semester. Each event features ethnic food, music, dance, guest speakers, performances by the members of ISO, and sharing of cultural experiences. Our Annual Fiesta, part of the spring semester, is the biggest cultural event of its own kind and has made us very successful spreading internationalism into the Western New York community.
