International Student Activities and Events
Over 100 student clubs and organizations, including academic, arts, athletic, leadership, media, multicultural, political, service, and social groups, are open to all Roanoke College students. Among them is a very active International Club, which has international and U.S. members. The club sponsors events including culture and film nights, social events, International Festival, and international speakers. International Education and International Club also sponsor day trips, such as hikes and visits to historical sites, and weekend trips to Washington, DC and Charleston, SC. Participating in International Club is a great way to meet people from around the world and share cultures.
Each spring, Roanoke College presents International Festival, featuring the sights, sounds, and tastes of countries around the world. Hundreds of people attend to see the display tables hosted by students, faculty, and staff representing over 40 countries and to enjoy international music, dance, and refreshments.
