Like the world itself, the SIS student body is a diverse group of people. Approximately 70 percent of our students come from California and 30 percent are from out of state or abroad. Many of our students have had some overseas experience before enrolling in SIS. Many have traveled with their parents, some were born abroad; some are “Global Nomads” (US citizens who have spent much of their lives abroad), some were exchange students in high school and some have never been outside the US.
The School of International Studies takes great pride in the work of our students during their time on campus and in their professional achievements as alumni. In addition to their intensive studies within the major, and experiential study abroad; our students take courses in other schools and disciplines often adding second majors, degrees or minors to their program of study. They are also involved in many clubs and organizations on campus and in the community, including: Global Forum, OASIS, Model UN, Delta Phi Epsilon, Puentes and others.
