Global Buddy Program

The Center for Global Education offers a Global Buddy program that brings together small groups of international students and students who grew up in the U.S. to build friendships, share their cultures, practice conversational English (if English is not their first language), get to know Edgewood and Madison, and have fun!

Participation in this program requires a one (1) semester commitment. 

Group meetings:

  • Each small group will determine when and where to meet.
  • Meet at least twice in September and then at least once a month throughout the rest of the semester; more frequent meetings are encouraged.

If you are interested in cross-cultural learning, this program is for you! 

To join the program, complete this survey by August 1/January 1:
