International Students

Friendship Program

Want to become friends with students from all around the world? The friendship program is designed to pair international and domestic students with the goal of developing lifelong friendships and helping students feel at home in a country other than their own. After filling out a survey, participants are paired based on compatibility and then introduced at our Reveal Mixer!

After the Reveal Mixer, participants are expected to attend two additional Friendship Program Mixers during the semester to spend time with their partner and engage in fun activities together. In addition, partners are encouraged to meet up outside of official mixers in order to continue developing the friendship and forming a bond.

Applications have now CLOSED for this program. Selected participants (based on compatibility and ratio of domestic to international students) will be contacted by the end of Monday, September 6th, 2021, with additional information. Thank you for your interest in the Fall Friendship Program!
