Virtual Events and Activities


ISSS is eager to connect with you! While some of us are learning and working remotely, we think we should also take the opportunity to meet up remotely. Stay tuned to this page and the Emory Virtual Community Hub for new events and activities to meet new friends and connect with old ones. Also, we are offering immigration workshops and presentations virtually (click here for more information).

The US government has issued special guidance for international students for the 2021-2022 academic year. ISSS is analyzing the guidance and will share details soon.
