​​Events & Activities

Social and Community Building

The International Affairs Scholars Program (IA) hosts several events and programs throughout the year to connect students with each other through social activities, excursions throughout the city of Columbus, documentary nights, and informal gatherings. IA Scholars also have the opportunity to connect with program alumni in various fields; IA Scholars also have the opportunity to connect with a peer mentor and teaching assistant for additional support.

Community Engagement 

IA Scholars are especially encouraged to serve the local Columbus community through a variety of service projects. Our program currently has partnerships with several nonprofit 
throughout the city of Columbus that IA Scholars can become involved in. IA Scholars also attend numerous cultural events throughout the year, including festivals, concerts, sporting events, and other activities with an international and/or global focus.

Professional and Academic Development

A goal of the program is to make students aware of the vast career opportunities in the international field. Professionals with international job experience are invited to campus to meet with International Affairs Scholars students. Students are encouraged to dialogue with these professionals to gain insight on preparing for an international career, choosing a career, as well as learning about internships available to them as undergraduate students. Past guest speakers have come from a variety of fields including international business, international law, development work, international diplomacy, and international journalism just to name a few.
