Make new friends from around the world: Join International Buddies

Submitted by Brooke Schettler

Scan to fill out the survey

Do you want to learn about other cultures around the world, improve your foreign language skills and make both international and local friends? Join K-State's International Buddies Club, a registered departmental student organization.

International and local students are paired into small buddy groups. Buddies get the opportunity to meet up, learn more about each other's culture and connect in an informal setting. International students get to feel more a part of the Manhattan community while local students get to become more globally aware. You can make friendships that last a lifetime. Plus, it is for all majors. Business, engineering, education, statistics and more all benefit from this club.

Your group can meet all in person, hybrid, or all online; whatever you are most comfortable with. Groups are matched according to your preferences. To be put in a group for the fall semester, please fill out the survey online or scan the QR code. The survey should take no more than five minutes, and the information you provide will help match you with peer buddies who share similar interests.

The applications will close at 6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 8.
