Global buddies is an initiative aimed toward assisting international students with their academic and social transition to NYU and New York City. The program pairs at least one international student with one domestic student for a full semester. Domestic students are asked to help facilitate their international peer’s transition based on their individual needs. As a result, domestic students will gain greater cultural understanding and leadership experience. Pairings are expected to meet informally as often as needed, but at least once per month. There will also be planned opportunities such as a larger meet and greet, social events, and other planned opportunities.
