Become a First Friend and promote cultural exchange

Posted on Wednesday, Jul. 2, 2014 — 10:30 AM



Join International Student and Scholar Services in welcoming new Vanderbilt international students this fall by becoming a First Friend.

First Friends fill out an application and are matched with an incoming international student based on their common interests.

Matches will meet for the first time at a picnic Sept. 7 and build their friendships throughout the academic year with regular socializing and activities.

To learn more about the First Friends program or to participate, visit the ISSS website and complete a Partner Application.
