Who are we?
Volunteers and Staff associated with International Students, Inc.
If you're new to Philly, we are glad you're here! We are a group of Americans and other international students and scholars who want you to feel like Philly is your "home away from home." Most of us volunteer our free time because we care about you. Take a look at our "Meet the Team" page and you'll see we are a diverse group! At ISI Philly, we're all about CONNECTIONS--you can read more about all the ways you can connect on our "Ways to Connect" page. We are a Christian non-profit organization affiliated with the Chaplain's office at The University of Pennsylvania. We are open to everyone, regardless of race, religious background, gender orientation or country of origin. We welcome you!
