Greetings from the International Students and Scholars Center! Can you believe it’s already June? Summer is moving faster than we want, but we hope you’re having fun, and staying healthy and safe.

This is the next installment in our summer series covering a variety of topics as we count down to the start of the fall semester. We want you to know all about things to do in Arizona, services offered by the ISSC and what you can expect this fall.

This week, it’s all about us, the International Students and Scholars Center. We keep saying we’re here for you, and we know that you know about all the compliance-related services we offer, but there is so much more to how we support students.

Did you know that the ISSC offers:
