Summer is in full swing and somehow this year feels busier with a tinge of nostalgia. As campuses reopen across the country - that is, if they are not already back in session - there is a bit of excitement, uncertainty and hope of a normal Fall semester. The initial foot back on campus for many has been made, and we are starting to get reacquainted with life back in the office. I know I will miss my yoga pants and sneakers, but I would trade it in a second for a return to face-to-face meetings and conferences. Our team is looking forward to seeing you all soon!

Insurance Requirements - Helping Students Find The Right Plan

Many international students are preparing for their Fall semester and one of those important considerations is finding and enrolling in their international student health insurance plan. It is not always easy as students need to determine what their school’s insurance requirements are and find a plan that will meet. With ISI’s school requirements portal, students can easily find their health insurance options by searching for their school and comparing insurance plans.

Note: If you would like to include specific dates of coverage or instructions, please let us know so we can help make the process even easier for your students.

Why Taking A Breath Does More For Your Body than Just Breathing

Read our latest blog where we will look at this connection and explore ways to incorporate this into your everyday life.

Staff Pets - Meet Juno!

Greg Heindel
Email Marketing Manager

Juno is a 13 year old Pit Bull Terrier. Greg has been with her since she was 4 months old when she just loved to clumsily bounce around and play in rain puddles. Juno grew to be a very athletic and youthful dog that enjoyed skateboarding, swimming and running around with other big dogs at the park. Now, her best friend is a two year old dachshund and, although she still has lots of energy, her favorite activity is laying in the sun. Juno still enjoys playing in rain puddles.
