Intercultural Exchange at the International House

The International House, or I-House, seeks to bring together graduate students from all over the world attending universities in New York. Founded over 90 years ago, International House is a center of international cultural exchange for the 700 students living there. Adjibola Amzat, a news reporter from Nigeria who currently studies journalism at Columbia University, noted that “[w]ithout the International House, New York would have been a very, very lonely place for many people."
