International Students of Santa Ana College and English Language Academy are encouraged to join the ISA. Currently, there are about 100 international students from more than 30 countries are studying at Santa Ana College and the English Language Academy. International students come to the U.S. seeking higher education. We not only have the opportunity to study, but also have the chance to become independent and learn many intercultural skills. We bring diversity to the institution and community. The ISA provides different learning and social opportunities for its members and the community.
Increasing International and community awareness of the academic richness and cultural diversity that international students bring to the campus and community.
ISA not only helps its own members to adopt the U.S. culture by providing many exciting activities such as picnics, cultural cuisines, road trips, day tours, sporting events, cultural activities, and parties. ISA members are very active in community volunteer activity. ISA supports cultural awareness events such as the International Festival to increase diversity and awareness in the community.
Any SAC student is eligible to join the ISA. There is a $50 per semester membership fee. All active members are welcome to join any of the activities and events sponsored by the ISA. All of the activities provided by the ISA are funded by the ISA membership fee and sponsored by the International Student Program.
