Plan to attend both Friday and Saturday, as the Saturday sessions will be closely tied with the Friday night events. 

Friday Night

  • You may want to go directly to your hotel and check-in to your room(s) first. Hotels are located close to the conference location.
  • Arrive at the conference location by 5:30pm. Your group will need to report to the registration desk to check-in. Come prepared to have dinner, then enjoy the evening's speaker and activities with students from around the world.


  • Arrive by 9:00am to enjoy breakfast and get the day started with our moderator, Salorne McDonald.

Keynote and Sessions

  • Our keynote speaker will address the group and conduct group activities with all participants until lunchtime.
  • Interactive and informative sessions are provided during the afternoon on Saturday. Session topics vary and can be a formal presentation, an experiential learning activity, a panel which focuses on an aspect of leadership and/or being an "international student," and more! Some previous ISLC sessions have covered a wide array of issues: cross-cultural communication, women in leadership, the importance of relaxation, tools for being an effective student org. exec. member, utilizing social media to achieve your goals, etc.
    • If you would like to present a session please complete a session proposal today!

Saturday Night

  • There is over an hour between the last session of the day and the reception and dinner, which is followed by a dance party. You may take this time to rest and change or hang out with new ISLC friends. Plan accordingly and bring a change of clothes to dress to impress (traditional clothing encouraged) to mark the end of the conference on a special note.
