    Tahlequah, Oklahoma, United States Campus Website

    Tahlequah, located in Oklahoma along the Illinois River and near Lake Tenkiller, is known as the “Cherokee Capital” and is steeped in Native American heritage and surrounded by beautiful landscapes. It is located within one hour of the major U.S. city of Tulsa, yet still draws tourists to its charming historic downtown with its many museums, galleries and annual festivals. Tahlequah has a four-season climate, which is typical of the Midwest region of the U.S.

    International students have many opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities as there are more than 80 student organizations available, including an International Student Organization, Saudi Student Association and an Indian Student Association, all of which are extremely active on campus. Multicultural events include Lunar New Year, World Fair, Diwali, Desi Night, Saudi National Day Celebration, World Cup viewing party, American barbecues, international soccer tournament, Homecoming, Fall Festival, Halloween party and Thanksgiving Dinner. Students can compete in the International Talent Show and run for Mr. and Miss International. 

    The fitness center is available for use free of charge. A number of intramural sports are offered each year.
