International Friendship Association – Originally created to help students connect with local families, the International Friendship Association has grown to serve students and surrounding communities in many important and meaningful ways. The International Friendship Association sponsors welcome potluck dinners during orientation week for the fall and spring semesters. New and returning international students get to meet community members at the end of orientation week. The good food and informal setting create a warm atmosphere for people to get to know one another. For more information, contact the International Programs Office at ipo@uidaho.edu.



Non-Traditional Student Support Group – Many non-traditional students are returning to school after a significant absence. The purpose of the non-traditional student support group is to maintain a support system and relieve stress through networking and fun. For more information, please contact the Women’s Center at 885-6616 or email wcenter@uidaho.edu.



SODA – Sexual Orientation Diversity Alliance is an organization open to all students who are interested in extending civil rights to all Americans. SODA serves as a support group for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) law students, in addition to law students who have family and friends in the GLBT community. Our main goals are to (1) educate our school and our community about GLBT issues, and (2) to participate in legal issues that affect the GLBT community in Idaho. Furthermore, we provide information and networking occasions to GLBT law students in order to increase educational and career opportunities. Through these goals and opportunities we hope to promote understanding and acceptance among all. SODA’s blog is at http://uidahosoda.blogspot.com/.
