International Spouse Connection (ISC)

We are currently meeting Wednesdays from 1:00 to 3:00 at the University Village Community Center, 1199 Garden City Rd, East Lansing, MI 48823. 

The International Spouse Connection (ISC) is a group organized by international spouses/partners and for international spouses. Our mission is to help international spouses make connections and to find friendship and support within the international community at MSU.

Moving to the U.S. can be exciting and challenging for the spouses of international students. To help spouses connect and feel welcome, the ISC focuses on helping spouses of international students and scholars embark on a new life in the United States.

ISC provides many resources including the International Spouse Circle, a chance to meet other international spouses new to the area to share culture, make new friends, and discuss the challenges of moving to a new country.

ISC meets weekly throughout the year for fellowship, games, field trips, learning, and encouragement.  Meetings are facilitated by a native speaker of English to help with communication, cultural information, and English conversation practice. For more information, or to sign up for information on ISC's weekly programs, email isc.msu(at)
