Social and Cultural Programs

Global Friends Hour (GFH)

Join ISS throughout the year from  11:45 AM to 12:45 in the Quarry Room (bottom floor of the Strosacker Union) for Global Friends Hour (GFH). This is an opportunity for international and BW students, staff, and faculty to come together to discuss international topics, cultures, and much more!

Group Outings

Throughout the year the International Student Ambassadors take the international students to various destinations around the Greater Cleveland Area that will allow the students to learn about local cultures and customs. 

We have traveled to Amish Country, Cedar Point, Niagara Falls, the Christmas Story House, the Chalet in Mill Stream, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo, Great Lakes Science Center, and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame!



Culture Night

Over 500 guests gather together for ISS's annual night of cultural celebration. As always it is an exciting night of celebrating cultures from around the world.

Culture Night will return each November in the Strosacker Union Ballroom.






It's a Small World

Each March, this event brings the continents to the BW Campus by offering another opportunity to experience and learn about diverse cultures from around the world!


Share Your Pictures

Hundreds of photos are "snapped" every semester, capturing the fun ISS students have during their adventures at BW. Students love sharing pictures from outings, culture nights, Global Friends Hours, and just hanging out. Upload your experiences to the Baldwin Wallace International Students Facebook Page
