Friendship Families Program

Friendship Families are families, or individuals, from University of Idaho and/or from the surrounding community who have expressed interest in the success and happiness of the international students who come to the University of Idaho area to study. Quite often, the Friendship Families are familiar with diverse cultures, having visited other countries themselves. The role of the Friendship family is to welcome new international students to the community by offering friendship and assistance with the numerous aspects of adjusting to a new living experience.

Conversation Partners Program

Conversation Partners is a program in which international and U.S. students meet every week for up to two hours to socialize. This is a great opportunity to learn about each other’s cultures and make new friends. In addition, our international students get the chance to practice their English as well.

The conversation partners determine the time and location of their meetings. Students are expected to meet in public places (anywhere on campus or in Moscow), visit cultural events (concerts, plays, exhibitions), go to a sports game, go shopping, etc.  See the link with suggestions for other activities below. Participants may receive community service credit by keeping track of their hours through the ASUI Volunteer Programs.

Culture Kits Program

A culture kit is a collection of materials that represents both traditional and modern aspects of a culture. Kits include items such as clothing, maps, stamps, coins, small flags, art objects, crafts, games, dolls, toys, photos, etc. The items in each kit are meant to be touched and used. The kits are designed to provide a hands-on educational experience and support the International Baccalaureate program.
