ISSS organizes a variety of programs to help international students and scholars excel academically and socially. ISSS also partners with other offices, departments, divisions, and student groups at Binghamton University, as well as community organizations to bring a variety of programming to both foreign and domestic students. Check out our B-Engaged page for upcoming events!

Friendship Family Program

The Friendship Family Program provides an opportunity for our international students and members from the Binghamton community to get to know each other.  Students receive more social support as they transition to a new culture while Friendship Families learn about cultures from around the world. 

International Coffee Hour

International Coffee Hour is held on the first Friday of each month during the academic year. The coffee hour provides a space where members of the entire University community can meet in a relaxed atmosphere. Each coffee hour is sponsored by a different University department or office. Refreshments are free.
