Global Buddy Program

In this program, new international students are paired with U.S. American students.  Our goal is to give you a great resource, mentor, and friend as you start your journey at Edgewood College.

Responsibilities of a Global Buddy:

  • Respond to your global buddy’s email prior to arrival in U.S.
  • Attend the Welcome Reception for all New International Students.  This is a great time to meet your buddy within the first week of classes.
  • Meet at least two times during the semester.
  • Attend Global Buddy events together! The Center for Global Education will host two events during the semester for you and your Global Buddy. 
  • To join the program, complete this survey by August 1/January 1:
