The International Ladies Club "ILC" is one of the most successful groups for international community at Ole Miss offered through the Cultural Connections Program. The Cultural Connections Program "CCP" (link) is a collaborative project of the UM Counseling Center , the Office of International Programs , and the Psychological Services Center , that offers several other groups and services for international community at Ole Miss, such as the Cultural Connections Club "C3", Cultural Connections Mentor Program , International Learning Exchange "ILEX" , and "Diverse Diggers", International Volleyball Team.
The goal of the International Ladies Club is to offer an opportunity for international community at The University of Mississippi to connect with others, learn from each other, and share unique knowledge and experiences. This club is open for international students, faculty, staff, and their female family members, as well as American woman that are interested in making international friendships. We provide support in adjustment and acculturation while living and learning in the U.S.
Within the International Ladies Club meetings you can meet new friends, enjoy conversations while having refreshments offered by the UM Counseling Center, practice your social and English speaking skills, learn new skills and teach others your hobbies or interests, practice your presentations, and talk about challenges and practical tips to overcome them. Often times we celebrate birthdays and other significant events, as well as go to field trips. Every club member is welcome to offer activities and ideas that can be done within the ILC.
