Global Friends and Families Program
Introduces international students to local families.
Held every Wednesday evening, a special activity, for example, pumpkin-carving, or a presentation on a given country is featured.
Held during fall semester, international students share their talents, cuisines, and information about their countries.
All students are welcome to join the friendly games: soccer, volleyball, swimming, badminton, etc.
Interested students sign up to be partnered with an American student at UE to learn about American culture and can practice speaking English by talking about their home culture.
Organizes activities and events to explore international, cultural, historical, and socio-economic affairs and bring together people of all backgrounds and nationalities.
There are a lot of activities for me to choose from after classes. In fact, I just started helping teach a salsa dancing class.
