Alright flappers and gangsters, you really know how to end the semester with a bang! We had an awesome, wild weekend with you all at the Gala, thank you for coming out and sharing memories to last a lifetime.

It’s safe to say that IEEC has witnessed one of the best semesters in it’s history. We have over 850 active students, have held over 70 events and raised enough money to award three students with scholarships for their journeys abroad next semester. Congratulations to Brier Casey, Lian Ortega, and Feven Ezra and thank you to everyone for making this semester so successful!

It’s hard to believe that this semester is already coming to an end. Alas, as chapters begin to close, we leave space for new chapters to be written. It has really been amazing you guys. Good luck with your exams and remember, if you need a break, join us for one of our hottest TGITs tomorrow night. Thank you for making this semester unforgettable!




A special shout out and thank you to Jose Carlos for being such an awesome photographer at the Gala. Head over to IEEC Spring 2015 to see more photos!

In World News…

Second Earthquake strikes Nepal

Perhaps you have all have heard the news that another massive 7.4 earthquake shook Nepal Tuesday night, taking more lives and creating more destruction. Since the first disaster struck Nepal two and a half weeks ago, the International Education Exchange Council has been raising funds that will go directly to Direct Relief, a credible, reliable and transparent organization. Direct Relief has the capacity to coordinate, monitor and evaluate a holistic recovery program which includes capacity building with locals later on.

For more information on our campaign and to help support our cause, please visit our IEEC Indiegogo.

Blog Post of the Week

My View on Equality


I had never faced the issue of racism until I came to the U.S. Here I experienced and observed it a lot. It triggered me to think about new ways of dealing with it.

As an International Business major busy with Human Resource Management and Change Management, I do not believe in the structural change. I believe in the cultural change instead. It applies to everything including racial inequality.  I think that changing the legislation, which ensures political and economic rights for everyone, is not enough since the change takes place only in the system and does not go further than that while racism is in people and it will inevitably find other forms which cannot be covered by legislation. The change in the mindsets of people should take place parallel to the structural change.

Bellow I present three points that I believe can address the issue from a point of view of a young person and a student of the 21st century…
