International Students Weekly Bulletin

International Friendship Program

The International Friendship Program allows international students and visiting scholars the unique opportunity to be paired with local community members/families, SCSU students, or SCSU faculty/staff.  You may decide to participate for a semester, year, or on a continuous basis. 

Through the International Friendship Program, you will be matched to form a “friendship family” which will provide you with an introduction to life in the U.S. while you, in turn, help your American host learn about other cultures.  This cross-cultural friendship will provide you with opportunities to explore cultural differences and gain a better understanding of the role you play in the larger world.

The Center for International Studies reviews all applications and matches participants based on similar hobbies, special interests, etc. you have in common based on your application form.  We also remain in contact with all participants to ensure satisfaction with the program.

If you are interested in this program, please email for an application or for more information.
