The international affairs office is hosting its annual International Friends Program. The department needs additional host volunteers, and the deadline for community members to sign up is Friday, Oct. 30.

This program matches international students with community members who have similar interests. The program gives you the opportunity to share your culture, while learning about the culture of others. Community friends may be local families, individuals or Missouri S&T students.

Participants generally meet at least monthly in local homes or at community events. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however, all participants should follow guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Consider alternate activities such as a Zoom game night.

If you are interested in joining the program, complete an application. Participants who are matched will receive an invitation to a virtual reception at 5:30-6:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 12.

For more information, please contact Richie Myers, cultural program coordinator in international affairs, at 341-4335 or email
