International Friendship Program

Festival of Lights

The International Friendship Program is a program coordinated by UC International that matches international students with local families or community members. The program is designed to help international students experience American life and learn first-hand about US culture, and also provide the opportunity for local friends and families to interact with students from all around the world. The majority of matches are made at the beginning of the academic year, but there is also the possibility of being matched periodically throughout the year, based on availability.
