International Buddies - Friendship Without Borders - Together We Are Promoting Intercultural Learning

Join the International Buddies group!

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.

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

International students, domestic students, and/or local community members can sign up to join the International Buddies organization for the Spring 2022 semester now! Please use the link below:
