Welcome to the IEEC

The International Education Exchange Council at San Francisco State University is an official student organization that maintains a goal of encouraging international education, student exchange, study abroad, and the sharing of cultures between international and domestic students. The IEEC is the largest SFSU on-campus student organization with over 1700 members and 70 officers each semester. Three main groups of students make up IEEC: international students, domestic students who have studied abroad, and domestic students who will study abroad in the future. All three groups come together, interact, teach, learn and socialize; we do not differentiate between any group!

IEEC officers are those involved in the leadership and planning aspects of the many IEEC-hosted events on and off campus. IEEC officers are both international and domestic students who voluntarily sign up for the responsibility of running the organization. By being an officer you gain real, hands-on job skills within areas of planning, communication, marketing, public relations, event management, design, finance, leadership, networking, administration etc. and you get involved with people of diverse backgrounds who has the same interest as you.

Committee members pay a smaller role on one or two committees of their choice, but play a huge role in supporting the organization, and its activities.

Becoming an IEEC member or officer is an opportunity to make friends, create a network with people from all over the world, do language exchange and more. IEEC also works closely with the university’s Office of International Programs (OIP) – an advantage for those who want to study abroad.

Trip down to Los Angeles

Last weekend me and my friends went to LA. It was so easy to get there! We took a flight there and it took a little more than an hour and only cost $7 for a roundtrip. We lived right by the beach at Venice beach. We got so surprised how cheap it was! We […]
