Consider joining the Global Friends Program!!


The Global Friends Program matches international students with domestic students here at UGA.  The goal of the program is to promote intercultural friendships across campus. 


         It allows international students the opportunity to have an American contact who can help them to learn about the United States, Georgia, Athens, UGA, and American culture! Sometimes it can be more difficult than you might imagine to make friends with members of your new host country

         It allows domestic students the opportunity to explore another country and culture without leaving Athens! In some cases it provides an opportunity to practice language skills as well!
