The International Buddy Program is a way to provide U.S. domestic and international students with a multi-cultural college experience. U.S. students interested in languages and culture are paired with international students who want to learn more about the United States. Whenever possible, Buddies are matched based on common interests like sports, movies or outdoor activities. The Buddy Program is free and voluntary. The only requirements are commitment and a friendly attitude. For more information, please contact Karen Slaymaker in the Office of International Student and Scholar Services.
