UMaine’s vibrant international community is represented by the International Student Association. ISA was founded many years ago as a doorway to bringing the World to UMaine and preparing UMaine students for the world. It was formerly known as the International Club and was one of the most active clubs on campus. ISA is one of the largest and most active organizations. ISA serves as a network and a support base for all other internationally-focused clubs.

Students enjoy international coffee hour
 Coffee Hour                                                              

Coffee Hour is a social event sponsored by the International Student Association and Office of International Programs. It is usually held every Friday (except breaks) from 4:00 until 5:00 p.m. in the North Pod of the Marketplace during the fall and spring semesters. Some special events held during Coffee Hour include country and culture presentations, international food tasting, cooking competition, etc. It is a great way to meet other international and American students. Free refreshments are served.  See who is hosting Coffee Hour this semester.
