Cultural and Educational Events

It can be difficult to leave your family and friends behind to live in another country. However, most international students make new friends through activities, clubs, and organizations on campus. Explore some of the many ways in which you can get involved on campus, and read about 100 things to do in Springfield.  The Visit Springfield Illinois website also has excellent information on great restaurants, sites and attractions, arts, culture, history, shopping, and more!

IMPORTANT:  DUE to COVID-19, many of our upcoming events and workshops will take place online via Zoom.  If you have any questions, please email
