The International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) office is recruiting new participants for its Friendship Family Program which involves a family or individual from the surrounding community who forms a social relationship with one or more international student(s) enrolled at Binghamton University. This social relationship can consist of family dinners, phone calls, conversations over coffee or tea, attending an event together or going to see the latest movie. Friendship families do not provide housing or financial, academic, medical or psychological assistance.
