Arriving in a new area and being away from family and friends can be a life-changing experience. The Spring Connections Program assists international students in connecting them with experienced individuals who can help international students transition to their new environment.
UB’s spring semester will soon be upon us, and ISS is inviting you to participate in our Spring Connections program! Similar to the International Student Mentoring Program, Spring Connections is designed to help students meet and interact with new people in a small group setting during the spring semester. This program runs from February through the end of classes in May. Read below to see how this program will work for you!
It doesn’t take more than one hour to make a difference and learn something new!
This is a chance to meet and form relationships with new international students AND current international or domestic students, staff or faculty members who have been living in Buffalo for more than year.
Here is your chance to meet and help new international students who are not familiar with life at UB and in Buffalo prior to COVID-19 restrictions. Since groups will have multiple members it is also a chance to form new friendships with international and domestic peers.
If you are interested in meeting and helping new international students learn about Buffalo and life in the US, this opportunity is for you! You don’t have to know about other cultures, speak other languages or have traveled overseas. All you need is a sincere desire to help others and an interest in people from other cultural backgrounds.
If you are interested in joining the Spring Connections program, please fill out our registration form to be matched with a group in the program!
If you have any questions about the program, please call 716-645-2258 or e-mail ISS at firstname.lastname@example.org
Applications are due Friday, January 28th.
