We are so glad you have chosen to
make Greensboro a part of your educational
journey - because that means we get the chance
to meet you!
organizations that participate in
GreensboroFriends.net offer opportunities
(mostly free) for international students in
Greensboro to connect with each other
and with local Americans to form
friendships. Through these relationships,
students are able to explore important
dimensions of American culture that are not
available on campus or in tour groups: family,
home, and local community life.
Opportunities include free dinners (with free
transportation) in American homes, a few low-cost
trips, various other group activities, and a
service to provide personal matching with an
American individual or family for regular contact.
The Americans who participate are the some of the
friendliest people you will ever meet, and they
love to interact with cultures from around the
world. Even though the organizations are Christian
in background, we welcome students from all
cultures, faiths and philosophies. Although we
love to share and compare matters of life, faith,
and culture, we do not pressure or expect students
to change their views, beliefs, or practices.
We trust that the relationships you find here will
be friendships you remember, cherish, and even
maintain for your whole life.
