For us is an honor and a pleasure to be able to give you a warm WELCOME and wish you the best
luck during these two years here in Taiwan and we are more than sure that it will become like your
second home.
Taiwan, STUT and ISA wish you all the best and the successes in this new stage of your lives that
will start today. Living this new experience like a part of the STUT Family is an unforgettable experience
that will help you to grow as mature people and better human beings.
About ISA (International Student Association) just let me tell you that is a new group of young
students that are part of the IMBA Program here in STUT. Since last semester we decided to create this
group or association just in order to help all of the international students with any kind of problems or
doubts about our Programs or just about our daily lives.
The main purpose of this group of students is just to have like a representation among the staff in
STUT. We expect to be the channel between the students and our professors and administrative staff. We
already have a sponsor professor, who is glad to help us and support us with all our activities as a ISA.
Now we will just like to ask you for your support and a little bit of your time to share with us all
your ideas and suggestions. Also we are open to all of those students that will like to be a part of our
association. Since all of the members now are senior.....in a few months we are going to leave STUT but
we would like this association to keep going ahead every year since we consider this as a very helpful
group of people.
So all of you guys are more than welcome to join the ISA and we would love to get all your support.
Anything that you need just feel free to contact any of us.... In a few days we are going to plan a meeting
just to talk about our plans for this first semester and he expects to see all of you guys there.
Now once more....WELCOME TO TAIWNA AND TO STUT We hope you like it and we are
looking forward to have a good time with all of you.

Introduction
The basic idea of this project came from the e-learning class
in terms of knowledge management, sharing community
and perspectives as following:
If we are studying in the universities which already have
great reputation, it will be great benefits to the students for
their future study and career. However, the reputation can
not be created in one day or one year and it's not only the
university side to create it. The great reputation are able to
develop by the students also.
Introduction
Moreover, the current students and alumni are important to
prove the quality of institution. Now, our university has only
4 generations of international students. We are in the
beginning step to grow in the international perspective.
Hence, if we can do something even it is the smallest things
but it can be the infrastructure’s component for the future
big things, it would be good and the results will be return to
all of us in one day.

between International students ,Taiwanese students ,Professors,
University staff by exchanging the knowledge, cultures, opinions,
information, etc.
For the alumni, we can keep in touch after we graduated and also
help to give some guideline to the current students.
For the future students, we can use to provide the useful
information for new comers and we can share suggestions and our
warm welcome to them.
For other community’s members, we can use this forum to be the
information center.
