Welcome to the USD International Student Blog


Thank you for stopping by the USD International Student Blog! USD hosts international students and scholars from more than 70 countries in the world! This blog is a space to highlight our student’s experiences and their contribution to making USD an award winning campus for internationalization

Here at the International Office of Students and Scholars, our mission is to:

  • To provide services that are comprehensive to all international students and scholars.
  • To assure that the international community, as well as the University, are informed of the constantly changing immigration laws and regulations.
  • To support students in achieving academic and personal success in their process of becoming global citizens through weekly events and skills-based workshops. 
  • To serve as a platform for collaboration and connections to last a life time. 

Our distinguished group of students and scholars have the opportunity to participate in practices that are intellectually challenging, culturally enriching, and personally enjoyable. The featured stories in this blog are just some of the examples of USD students who are truly global citizens.
