Each year hundreds of International Students travel thousands of miles to attend Miami University and the International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) office helps them every step of the way. In this conversation, we will learn more about recent enrollment trends and statistics, challenges for international students, highlights of the international student experience, and what steps Miami University takes to internationalize the campus.

Join the Miami University Alumni Association, the Director of International Student and Scholar Services, Molly Heidemann, and ISSS staff members on Monday, April 19 at 12:00 p.m. ET. for an inside look at the Miami International Student Experience.
