Buddy Program

The Buddy Program connects you to other international students and our experienced Global Ambassadors through an online communication app, Discord.

Each week during the academic year, you’ll hear from one of our Global Ambassadors and get their valuable advice on campus resources. You can use the community to ask questions about student life in the U.S. and be the first to hear about any upcoming events.

The Buddy Program Discord community accepts applications each semester and is open to all enrolled Main Campus University of Arizona students and J-1 student interns.

Submit the Interest Form below to request to join the Buddy Program Discord community. After verifying your affiliation with the University, you will receive a link with more information.

The Buddy Program will reopen in August 2024.
