This is accomplished through monthly discussions, educational activities and group excursions. First Friends help international students navigate campus life and culture. International students interested in participating in the Bridge Program and participating in discussions, activities or excursions with First Friends must complete the application. Previous international students wishing to re-apply must also complete this application by the appropriate deadline. Get the online application here: Bridge Program International Student Application
