What is it?

The International Friends Mentor Program (IFMP) connects incoming international students with current Armstrong campus students. Mentors help their mentees adjust to American culture and life at Armstrong campus. It works around your schedule: Just check in on your mentee once a week and meet up and hang out together once a month for the semester. IFMP is a part of the International Student Organization. Its members will automatically be considered active members in ISO and receive the same perks!
