ISSS Programs for New Students

ISSS organizes social and informative programs throughout the year. Two of these programs are listed below. Visit our Programs Webpage and ‘like’ our Facebook page for additional program information and updates!

The Friendship Family Program involves a family, or individual, from the surrounding community who has interest in forming a social relationship with an international student. This social relationship can consist of family dinners, phone calls, conversations over coffee or tea, attending an event together or going to see the latest movie.

The International Spouse Program (ISP) provides support and assistance to your spouse when he or she joins you at Binghamton University. The ISP offers its members free, weekly ESL instruction. The ISP provides an excellent opportunity to practice English, to learn about day-to-day living in the U.S., to become involved in community activities and socialize with other spouses.
