The International Buddies Program pairs local K-State students, staff, and community members with international students, scholars and family members. Once paired, Buddies meet regularly to learn about each others' cultures, customs, and explore Manhattan & K-State.
All students are welcome to attend International Buddies events, even if you do not sign up for a buddy.
The International Buddies Program is a one semester commitment during which you are asked to meet with your buddy one hour a week.
