International Friendship Program

IU South Bend's International Friendship Program offers international students and their hosts a world of tradition, discussion, and other cross-cultural exchanges. Whether sharing a meal or participating in a family or community event, students and hosts have the opportunity to learn from each other in a variety of settings as students settle into the routines of school and experience the challenges of a new language and culture.

Participation is voluntary and open to all IU South Bend faculty, staff, students, and alumni. All participants are expected to attend an orientation session and to meet at least two or three times each semester, but shared activities are limited only by time, energy, imagination and the program's guidelines! 

Please complete the appropriate application linked below and return to IU South Bend's International Student Office by post.
