It's an extraordinary time for the Graduate International Student Club.

Welcome, international Trojans! 2020 has been a challenging year for all of us. The COVID-19 pandemic, virtual learning atmosphere, visa problems, and uncertainty of international relations… I know you have to overcome all of these challenges in order to come and join us, and I am deeply impressed by the courage, persistence, and adaptability you all have shown.

International students generally make up one third of the USC Marshall student population. As one of the largest clubs on campus, Graduate International Student Club (GISC) serves as the official student body for all the international students at Marshall. GISC provides rigorous career preparation, a peer mentorship program, culture-themed events, transition into US life best practices, and social mixers with other cultural clubs on campus. We are dedicated to building a diverse and inclusive international community and improving the success of international students professionally and socially.

We encourage you to reach out to us, whether you are prospective international students, current students, or alumni. Please remember, we are always here to listen, help and support.

Sincerely yours,

Junli Niu
