International Buddies open for spring 2021 applications

Submitted by Taylor Jamison

IBuddies Application QR Code

The spring 2021 application is open for International Buddies, a registered departmental student organization.

International Buddies is a program that matches international students and U.S. students together to promote friendship and cross-cultural exchange. International Buddies gives participants an opportunity to learn about other languages and cultures, improve their English-speaking skills for those not from a native English speaking country, and make lasting friendships. Each group will consist of approximately four buddies.

If you are interested in becoming involved with International Buddies for the spring 2021 semester, please scan the attached QR code or visit bit.ly/IBuddies. The survey should take no more than five to seven minutes and the information you provide will help match you with peer buddies who share similar interests.

All our large group events will be online this semester. The first event will be at 6 p.m. Feb. 25. Small buddy groups can meet all online, all in person or a combination — whatever you are most comfortable with.

The applications will close at 6 p.m. Feb. 5.
