Family and Friends

Three fans

The Auburn Family Friend Program was developed as a way to connect American host families with newly arriving graduate and undergraduate international students and assist them as they transition to life in a new country and a new academic environment.

The AFF program is sponsored through the International Student Organization in partnership with the Auburn Graduate School, Auburn Global, and the local community group, Friends of Internationals (FOI). Together these partners recruit American host families who are interested in developing mutually enriching relationships and sharing cross-cultural experiences with each other.
