Student Activities

Each semester the Office of International Education organizes many events and activities for international students, Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne, and the greater Fort Wayne community. Recent events include a Halloween Party, Study Abroad Fair, International Education Week, Final Exams Pizza Party, and Office of International Education Open House. We also host weekly Coffee Fridays, where students can gather to relax with snacks, coffee, hot chocolate, and tea and chat with friends.

Whether through celebrating different cultures, reaching out to the greater community by honoring the dynamic and diverse student body, or simply relaxing with friends after intense studying sessions, the Office of International Education is proud to sponsor and host various events throughout the year.
