Becoming a citizen of the world requires experience with a multiplicity of cultures. At Hobart and William Smith, international and exchange students from more than 30 nations enrich and enhance the HWS campus.

International Student Success sponsors and co-sponsors events designed to promote cross-cultural sharing between the many groups at the Colleges and Geneva communities, promoting a pluralistic and democratic community.

The Office of International Student Success also advocates for and addresses the needs of our international population by providing programs and services related to immigration matters.
