A Message about Student Involvement

SDSU Campus

Dear Semester at SDSU Students:

In addition to a wide variety of activities organized by the American Language Institute and many on-campus SDSU events, you will have access to hundreds of student organizations. Each has a specific area of focus and conducts regular meetings and activities.

While international students are not eligible to participate in Greek organizations (called fraternities and sororities) and sports clubs, other student organizations are very happy to have foreign students participate in their programs. In fact, they really appreciate the range of perspectives that international students can share.

One student group that has an international perspective is the Global Aztec Alliance. Their Buddy Program pairs students from abroad with local students. Each can learn from the other and international students can get a little help with understanding life in Southern California. Semester at SDSU students who are interested in being paired with a local student can sign up for the Buddy Program here. Please realize that they can’t guarantee they will have a buddy for everyone who signs up.
