International House

The Friendship Program

This program pairs same-gender students, one from an international country and one or more from the U.S., in order to develop friendships and make everyone feel “at home” at UT.  Though the International House hosts 2-3 gatherings throughout the semester, the students are encouraged to find opportunities to spend time together and share about their cultures. These events are for participants of the Friendship Program, which you can apply for online during the first couple weeks of each semester.
