ISPPU (International Spouses and Partners of Princeton University) is an organization created by and for the spouses and partners of Princeton University’s international scholars and graduate students. As the official sponsor of ISPPU, the Davis International Center (Davis IC) provides guidance and support to the organization. All international spouses and partners are invited to join.
ISPPU's many social programs provide opportunities for international spouses and partners to establish a sense of belonging through friendships and fun-filled activities. Newcomers to Princeton have also benefited from ISPPU's practical assistance that eases the adjustment to the U.S. culture and customs. You will learn helpful information about living in the U.S, make friends, and have fun! Some of our activities include families and children.
HOW TO JOIN: To become a member of ISPPU and to register to receive news about ISPPU activities, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add you to the ISPPU mailing list. Join ISPPU on Facebook to receive the latest news and events!
Here are what some ISPPU members are saying about their connections to ISPPU:
ISPPU helped my wife and me find our ways much faster when we arrived in Princeton - good tips and practical experiences are always shared among the members about where to go or what to do with all kinds of things. The activities are excellent opportunities to learn more about the university, Princeton, and other cultures and make new friends. Everyone is welcome to join and help organize activities.

I am a big fan of ISPPU. It is awesome how people get along with each other although they're from different countries and cultures. All members try to share their background and at the same time they support you with your new life here. You just have to experience ISPPU!

I was a member of ISPPU and was in charge of the Language Exchange Group. Everyone was eager to participate in several colorful activities and also to support us with our new life here. I welcome you to join! ~ Qing Zhou, China
