The International Students Club is open to any Amherst Regional High School student. This club was formed so that the American and international students at school could get to know each other socially, and could get to know the Amherst area together.
Members must be eligible by Student Handbook rules. New members can join during the school year. You do not have to come to every meeting, but you need to come most of the time to stay a member. (goal: 2/3 of meetings, 1/2 of the club projects or activities)
The purpose of this organization is threefold:
Meetings are held weekly. Through group process, the Club decides what kinds of activities to plan together. Activities have included teaching each other about our cultural favorite foods, participating in fund-raisers with a multi-cultural theme (for example, international food sales), producing our annual Community Potluck, and making shorter and longer field trips (for example, Amherst College Museums, Mullins Center Skating Rink). We tend to focus on very sociable activities, as the goal of the club is to create a safe and fun environment in which students can cross some of the boundaries between their various sub-communities.
