International Friends

Changing the world – one friendship at a time

Do you want to learn about another culture firsthand?

You can read all the cultural geography books in the world, but there is no better way to learn a culture than to befriend someone from another country.

International students and scholars are very eager to practice their spoken English. The security of a close relationship gives them the opportunity to gain confidence, ask questions about American culture, and simply share life with an American friend. Deep, long-lasting friendships are formed through the program.

The commitment is to meet for at least one hour per week during the semester.
