claytor lake cookout
Every year, as ISAC's first social event, we go to Dr. Hawley's house which is right on Claytor
Lake. With good food and good friends, you'll be missing out if
you're not there. This event is on the first weekend after the fall
semester begins and it's a great chance for you to get to know other
international students like yourself.
oasis fest '06
The Oasis World Market holds a festival once a year with live music,
food, and fun! Good news: we're going! It's the perfect time to
check out the international grocery store for hard-to-find foods you can't
get anywhere else.
international education week
The third week of November is The National International Education
Week. There will be many events focusing on the study abroad and
learning a different language.
bisset park soccer & bbq
When the weather is warm we have cookouts at Bisset Park which is
located just a few minutes from campus right on the New River.
Eating, playing pick-up soccer, and laying out in the sun with
friends are a few things we do.
shopping at the NRV mall
With stores like American Eagle, Victoria's Secret and PacSun, this
mall is the ideal place to shop. There is also a mall in Roanoke
(located 45 minutes away)
the great outdoors
ISAC wants to expose students to the beautiful area surrounding
Radford University. We can go tubing up the New River, hiking at the
Jefferson Cascades, and other fun outdoor activities including some
hosted by RU Outdoors.
D.C. has lots of places to shop, museums to explore, restaurants
to taste, and a large mixture of people to see -- and we're going to do
it all! We'll see the Washington monument, the National Zoo, Lincoln Memorial, the U.S. Capitol Building, the
National Museum of the American Indian, and Smithsonian’s National Air
& Space Museum! The nightlife in Georgetown and shopping at
Tyson's Corner, the coolest mall in Virginia is waiting for us too!
The greatest week of all! Not only do international students have a
chance to learn about various cultures around the world, but
American students do too. Every day has a different theme - whether
by country or by continent. There's food, music, performances, and
activities. This is a time for us to show our campus where we come
from and what is "home" to us. The last event of the week is the
International Banquet. It's a huge hit every year and this year will
mark out 15th one. Over 300 students, faculty, and Radford community
fill the banquet hall for live and invigorating performances and a
very long international buffet prepared by students in ISAC as well
as our friends.
