Adjusting to a new cultural environment can be exciting and challenging. New international students at the University of Minnesota often have a lot of questions and concerns during their first weeks on campus. The International Buddy Program was created to ease the transition, with current U.S. and international undergraduate students helping new undergraduate students.
