The International Club provides an environment for promoting the culture of international students and making the campus more aware of foreign cultures. Any member of the Methodist University community who has an interest in cultural diversity and international understanding may join.
The purposes of this organization shall be to promote international education, international study, and appreciation for cultural and ethnic differences. The Methodist University International Club shall be a forum for information about other people in the world and how they live.
The organization meets informally but is required to have four meetings per year. Those are usually held on campus and are social occasions.
The International Club's activities include dinners together, occasional field trips, movies, discussions, and attendance at local cultural and artistic celebrations. Depending upon the event, the costs are covered by individual members. Dinners are occasionally provided by the club/organization but most often by the sponsoring faculty member.
The club hosts the following community-wide celebrations:
- Fall Semester: Pangea (pictured)
- Spring Semester: International Food Festival
