Cross Cultural Friendship Program

Want to learn more about another culture and country, get volunteer credit, and best of all make a new friend?

Join the Cross Cultural Friendship Program, where international students pair up with American students who share same interests.  With a partner from a different country, you have a wonderful opportunity to learn about another country, its culture and values, and hear personal opinions about some global issues.

How much time does it take?

You decide! Only four one-hour meetings during the semester are required.

What am I required to do?

That is up to you! Enjoy a meal together, go to a movie, go to the RAC, or just have fun!
