What is this program?
Some students come to the U.S. and spend years without ever really getting to know what American life is like outside the campus environment. The Friendship Partner Program gives you the opportunity to get to know an American personally. In addition to being matched with an American friend/family you will be invited to join in their activities and experience American culture first hand.
Why should you get involved?
This is a good chance to make friends outside the campus and experience American life. You also become an “ambassador” for your country, sharing your culture with Americans.
Is this a Home-Stay situation?
No. You do not live with your American friend. It is simply a chance to get to know an American friend and to develop a friendship.
