International Student Club

Mission Statement: The International Student Club (ISC) is a group of student volunteers that fosters international community at Reed. By organizing and hosting events, ISC celebrates cultural diversity and shares traditions to engage with all Reedies. We aspire to create a home away from home for our international community.

The International Student Club, which was previously called the International Student Advisory Board (ISAB), organizes events throughout the year, including the International Festival.

International Festival

The International Festival, organized by the International Student Club (ISC), is an annual celebration of international diversity at Reed College. It is a community-wide event where students, faculty, and staff members share our backgrounds, cultures, and identities with one another.

This tradition of the International Festival started in 2010 to celebrate the international community and provide an opportunity for students from over 30 countries across the globe to come together. This festival has been a great venue to share international cuisine and performances and cultural exchange within the Reed community. Students and community members are welcome and encouraged to volunteer for the International Festival.

International Student Club Coordinator

Avis Corea Britton

Hola! My name Avis—I'm 100% pinolera from Nicaragua. Currently pursuing a degree in Neuroscience and serving as your International Student Club (ISC) Coordinator. Beyond my studies, I have many, many interests, from zine-making to filmmaking and making sourdough bread and playing the guitar. I love parrots and Alejandra Pizarnik! If you ever long for a taste of home, don't hesitate to give me a call, and we can whip up some comforting traditional food together (we'll quest through every dark corner of PDX to find the necessary ingredients). Excited to meet and share with every single one of you, and celebrate culture together!
