Immigration Programs & Social Events

Marymount University and the International Student & Scholar Services Office (ISSS) are committed to a student-centered learning community that values diversity. ISSS strives to further global awareness through a wide variety of intercultural and educational programs for the University community, these programs give an opportunity for students to share their rich cultures and be engaged in the University community.

There are many ways for international students to get involved on-campus. Every year, we also host incredible events on and off campus in the D.C. area. We also host programs designed to create safe spaces for our students to share their own experiences and find a home at the ISSS office. Keep your eyes on our Instagram and Facebook for updates on this semester’s events.

Some of our annual traditions include:

  • Monthly Intercultural Lunch & Chats in Rowley G105
  • International Banquet
  • Hispanic Heritage Month events
  • Dia de los Muertos ofrenda
  • Global Fall Hayride
  • Lunar New Year
  • International Education Week*
  • International Thanksgiving

We look forward to sharing our Spring 2024 events with you all soon. In the meantime, please follow the Center for Global Engagement’s Engage page for events, ISSS’s Engage, and Avanzamos’ Engage page for more events around campus.
