Conversation Partners Program
The purpose of Conversation Partners is to match an American student studying one of MCC's offered foreign language with an international student who is native to that country and would like to improve his/her English. In addition, there will be mutual benefits of cultural understanding.
International Student Association
The International Student Association was created to encourage and promote goodwill among international students to increase awareness and appreciation of other cultures, and to provide an opportunity to develop lifelong friendships. ISA recognizes, honors, and learns from students who come from many countries. Activities and events include guest presenters, educational trips, leadership opportunities, social activities, and volunteer efforts.
International Education at Mesa Community College (MCC) offers international students superior academic opportunities, unique cultural experiences, and a friendly campus environment. Students enrolling here are able to complete the first two years of an undergraduate bachelor's degree program in a setting dedicated to quality teaching.
