International Buddy Program

Application Login

The International Buddy Program originated in the International Center as a student mentor program designed to help international students who are attending the University of San Diego ease into student life and to keep USD students connected with their international experience. This program is committed to pairing international students with an experienced and committed USD student who can help them adjust to living in a new city, and to meet, mix with, and learn from other USD students. The goal of the International Buddy Program is to enrich the international student’s experience abroad and to create a truly global community.
