Make Real Friendships with Local Americans

GET CONNECTED

Here are a few popular ways to interact with us.

FRIENDSHIP FAMILIES

Friendship families are a great way to get to know the local people and culture of this area. Applications are available through IFI area director or Dr. Valerie Smith on campus.

ENGLISH CONVERSATION CLUB

This informal club emphasizes conversational English practice. Each week a different aspect of American culture will be discussed: making friends, family life, sports, humor, and holidays.

International Friendships (IFI)

International students often struggle with culture shock, stress, and loneliness when leaving their homes to study in the US. International Friendships, Inc. (IFI) is a national organization partnering with local churches, universities, and volunteers to provide life-changing hospitality and friendship to international students. We work strategically to make the world feel at home and extend God’s love globally — right where we are.
