About International Friends

International Friends helps international students to experience the US with a local host. Participants share common interests, exchange culture, and build lifelong friendships.

Founded over 20 years ago by a team of volunteers, International Friends is a staple of the international community at Missouri State. Now International Friends operates as a university program.
