About Global Friendship Day

Domestic first-year students are invited to join new international students for Global Friendship Days at the end of the in-person international student orientation, just before Welcome Weekend begins. At Global Friendship Days, international and domestic students will learn from one another and share experiences focused on common interests and collaborative activities. If you are interested in different cultural perspectives and building international friendships, this is the program for you!

Tentative program components include:

  • welcome dinner
