About I.M.O.M.

International Moms or Mates (I.M.O.M.) is a group for female spouses of international students and scholars at NC State University. I.M.O.M. is a place for personal growth, friendship, and fun – a place to belong in an unfamiliar place.  Participants do not have to have children to join I.M.O.M.

IMOM meetings involve a number of different activities depending upon the week. Sometimes we may be cooking, learning a new craft, learning about an aspect US culture or life in the United States, sharing our cultures around a particular topic, or taking a field trip to a local spot in Raleigh. Weekly emails are sent to participants to announce the activity for each meeting.
