Join the Global Buddies Program!
An initiative between UGA's Student Government Association and the Department of International Student Life to promote cross-cultural relationships amongst UGA students. The Global Buddies Program pairs international students with a partner student from the U.S. to meet periodically and share cultural perspectives and build long-lasting friendships.
The Global Buddies Program promotes intercultural communication and understanding between international students and U.S. students through the sharing of culture and the development of friendships. Join the fun and make a friend from a different part of the world!
All UGA students are welcome! International students and U.S. students will learn about new cultures and form a new friendship.
If you are an international student that has brought family members with you to UGA, please consider joining the Global Families program. Find more information at ifa.uga.edu.
