International Buddy Program
New incoming international students are paired with a returning domestic or international student to be their buddy. These buddies share their personal experiences with new international students. The primary goal of the International Buddy Program is to provide assistance for a smooth transition to Canadian culture for new international students.
By assisting these new students with things such as adapting to a new country, culture, and environment, and create a more relaxing and hospitable atmosphere for new international students. Visit the International Buddy Program website and our UPEI International Buddy Program Facebook group for more information.
