International Allies Organization is a multicultural group that promotes understanding and friendship between students from different countries around the world. Our programs and activities include:

  • the International Allies Program, in which we pair international students with a domestic ally. Discovering each other's cultures, further exploring American life, and having fun on weekends.            
  • Culture Exchange and Language Learning, which is done through our "Cultural Lunch Hours".  Startiing in October, we will meet once per month for food, fun, and conversation. International and domestic students alike will help each other with language practice and delve deeper into each other's cultures. 
  • Meeting with Friends at Fun Events; our past events have included cider mill trips, bowling nights, summer picnics,  and trips to landmarks around the Detroit area (the Detroit Institute of Art, Fox Theatre, Heidelberg Project). Every member is invited to join these trips!
  • Supporting International Students; everything we do is meant to support and assist the international students on-campus, and we welcome and encourage all domestic students who share our passion for internationalism to join our organization. We hope to enrich campus life by making our diverse student population apparent.
