International Programs & Events
Learning and living in a new culture is exciting! Many opportunities are available for you to smoothly transition into your new home at FHSU.
Clubs & Organizations
One of the best ways to get involved on-campus is to join a student organization. Over 100 different student organizations exist, all offering unique and exciting interest areas.
International student organizations are available for you to meet and connect with other international students from different parts of the world. One such organization is International Student Union (ISU). ISU is a student organization sponsored by the International Student Services Office and all students at FHSU can join.
Friendship Family Program
The Friendship Family Program offers you an opportunity to be matched with a local family from the Hays community. You and your match family will share meals together and learn about each other's countries and cultures.
International Education Week
International Education Week is a week long celebration of international and diverse countries and cultures celebrated each November at FHSU and within the community of Hays.
The International Student Services Office at Fort Hays State University
has celebrated International Education Week since 2001. Our goal is to support and promote global awareness and to
provide exchange experiences to all students in our small community. International Education Week is a wonderful week of events and activities
for all of our students, staff, and faculty to collectively come together and
share their experiences!
The International SPICE series is an evening devoted to exploring a featured country's food, clothing, culture, holidays, education system, government, and geography. The international speakers bureau is an opportunity for you to share your country and culture with local school children. Each semester, the International Student Services Office receives requests for international students to visit local classrooms and meet school children.
