International Affairs


Court Street during the 2013 International Week at Ohio University. This is one of the main events the International Affairs commission hosts throughout the school year.

What we do

We are the liaison between Student Senate, local students, and international students. We provide different platforms and opportunities where local students and international students can exchange their thoughts, ideas, experiences, and cultures.


Maintain and increase proper representation of international students on Student Senate. As well, we wish to provide more opportunities where local students can get to know about world outside the United States and where international students can feel as Athens, Ohio is their “home away from home”.


We have hosted some great events on campus such as International Week and the Interfaith Panel.
