The Society of International Students has been very busy planning and organizing student activities to promote the organization. The organization has been attracting new collaborations with other departments on campus such as Social Equity and the Honors College. The SIS has recently launched its new official T-shirts, which can be purchased at $20.00. The T-shirt consists of the SIS logo along with the famous slogan “Bringing the nations to the Blazer nation.” The slogan reflects the entire motto of the organization which is to bring culture and diversity to the Valdosta State University campus and Valdosta Community.
