Some of you have contacted the office for more information about the International Student Identity Card (a.k.a. ISIC). Getting an ISIC is an excellent idea! They are cheap ($25), good for one year and you can use them to save money on everything from hotels and food to museum entrance fees and bus transport.
You can no longer obtain an ISIC card in person in NOLA, but you may apply for one online. Please visit the ISIC website for more information. The online order form may be found here: http://www.myisic.com/get-an-isic-card.html.
