Ibuddies Application


The International Buddies Program pairs local K-State students, staff, and community members with international students, scholars and family members every fall and spring semesters. Once paired, Buddies meet regularly to learn about each others' cultures, customs, and explore Manhattan & K-State.

The International Buddies Program is a one-semester commitment during which you are asked to meet with your buddies one hour a week, twice a month. or as often as you and your buddies prefer.

All students are welcome to attend International Buddies monthly events, even if you do not sign up for a buddy group! 

International Buddies Officer elections take place during the month of April for the following year. Please email us to inquire about officer openings. 

Join our OrgCentral group if you're interested in learning more about Ibuddies.
