International Buddy Program: Buddy Reveal
“The International Buddy Program fosters meaningful friendships by pairing international students with domestic students in order to facilitate a smooth transition into American culture and college life.” This is the philosophy for the International Buddy Program (IBP).
Early in the semester, students from countries all around the world who are paired with American students meet for the first time during an event specifically designed to connect them. This event is called the “Buddy Reveal”. Students gathered in the Student Center Ballroom where they signed in and subsequently searched for, met, and mingled with their new buddies. Just take a look at some of the new friendships that were formed.
Recap pictures and a video of the event below.
