Family and Friends

Three fans

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

The AFF program partners with campus and community groups, including the local network Friends of Internationals (FOI). Together these partners recruit local individuals and families who are interested in developing mutually enriching relationships and sharing cross-cultural experiences with each other.
