3. The Community Friend Program is a great interactive community
program sponsored by the Athens International Council (AIC). The
program pairs an international student with a family from the Athens
Community who has expressed similar interests and hobbies. Currently
there are several families on the waiting list to become friends with
students from the international community. Students should plan to take
advantage of this great way to learn about more about Athens and the US
first hand and possibly make friends with a family for life! Many
families will invite students to share in various aspects of their
lives, including holiday celebrations. You may pick up an application at
the International Student Life Office located at 210 Memorial Hall.

4. If you have signed up for the Global Friends program during
orientation but have not yet been contacted, or if you are interested in
becoming a member of the Global Friends program (a peer/mentor program
for new students that creates a social bond between new students and
returning students in the UGA community), please contact Nicole Jones at

this semester's Global Friends. Check with Nicole for more details.
