The Family and Friends program allows for the development of friendship, promotion of peace, and exchange of culture between American families and international friends at EIU.
While in Charleston, many international students at EIU have created lifelong friendships with American families. Families and students spend at least once a month learning more about each others' countries and cultures by attending EIU activities together, working on hobbies, exploring the community, and celebrating holidays and birthdays!
During the event, you will have the opportunity to interact with interested American families and other international students. Come join the fun!
