Most of our sections have a program that connects local students with international students. The local students help in ways that the university cannot provide, with things like which milk to buy at the supermarket, the secret quiet study places on campus, or integration into the local community. We encourage you to look into your local or future section to see if they have a program (called Buddy, Fadder, Phadder, or Mentor) and sign up, either as a local student to meet internationals, or as a future student to meet locals.
