About IASA

The International & American Student Alliance (IASA), formerly known as the Exchange & American Student Alliance (EASA), was founded in the Fall of 2015 by Kelly Slater, a English Education major at the University of Mississippi. Our organization is now officially recognized at the University of Mississippi and we are continuing to move forward!
While several organizations exist to help degree-seeking International
students assimilate into life in Oxford (and do a great job at it), we focus more on building one-on-one relationships between International & American students and finding ways for them to connect. IASA was founded with the goal of bridging the gap between International Exchange and American students at Ole Miss.
We do this through organizing a variety of programs (Conversation Partners, International Neighbors, English Clusters, Grocery Ride Groups, etc.) and events (Social Events, Game Day Tailgating, Bonfires, etc.) throughout each semester. For more information about existing and upcoming programs and events, check out those pages on the website menu tabs.
If at any time you have any questions about our organization or are wishing to get involved, please contact us and we'll be happy to help!
