Historical Information: for the RIT International Student Club

The RIT International Student Club was formed in 1955 by a group of foreign students to promote a better understanding between foreign and American students. However, membership was open to anyone interested in international affairs, and several American students joined the club. In its first year, the club sponsored several panel discussions dealing with the Middle East, Indonesia, and other current affairs. The International Student Club is no longer active. It is unclear when it disbanded.
