Please follow the instructions below if you would like to participate in the buddy program. The IP Office accepts applications from both international students and CI students, and tries to match buddies based on their similar interests. 

  1. Visit www.go.csuci.edu/findbuddy and complete the survey.
  2. Once completed, the International Programs Office will contact you that we have received your survey and request for a buddy.
  3. We will contact you within 1-2 weeks with information on your new buddy.
  4. Once we find a buddy for you, we will also ask that you both come in to our office for an introduction and a brief orientation.
  5. Once your orientation is complete, you and your buddy are free to get to know each other and organize your own activities!
