I. International Students Association at Berkeley
The International Students Association at Berkeley (ISAB) is an ASUC sponsored student organization aimed at providing an intellectual and social atmosphere for international, out-of-state and domestic students. ISAB organizes various events such as the International Education Week (IEW), day trips to San Francisco, cultural shows, food festivals, potlucks and international dance parties. In addition to hosting cultural and social events, ISAB provides vital services and resources to international students via our International Student Development (ISD) committee. We also work closely with other students organizations and the Berkeley International Office (BIO).

Why ISAB?
When international students have questions, we serve an advisory role by answering questions directly on our online forums, or by directing students to the appropriate individual or department. Between our list-serve (500+ members) and facebook grup (400+ members) we are the largest all inclusive international group on campus.

The International Student Development (ISD) committee aims to directly improve and provide services and resources available to the international students on campus. ISD provides advocacy for international students by staying on top of policies and news pertaining to them. We stay updated and work closely with Berkeley Programs for Study Abroad (BPSA) office and BIO. We will provide a database and workshops to help international students' transition to a new life in Berkeley. Our services include exploratory tours of the Bay Area, workshops on apartment hunting and information on employment or internship opportunities to students with F-1 visa in various areas of work.

If you're applying to medical school this summer, attend this conference to get tips and information to help you through the process. The conference will include:
- a panel of medical school admissions representatives who will describe their expectations and what they're looking for when evaluating applicants
- a panel of current students and recent alumni who have been accepted or are in medical school now. They will describe what the process was like, how they managed their time, and what contributed to their success in getting in to med school.
- workshops led by Career Center counselors about the AMCAS application, preparing for interviews, writing a winning personal statement
