Family Friends Program provides an opportunity for an EIU international student and an American family to meet once a month throughout the semester.

Family friends may wish to do fun activities, such as sports, hobbies, crafts, and celebrate holidays and birthdays together. This is a fun program for both students and families to learn about different cultures!
