Xchanged Life Buddy Program Application Due December 10th

Deadline: December 10 (reading day)

Xchanged Life is a student organization which provides a platform for UGA students to interact with incoming exchange students. One of our programs is a "Buddy System" which pairs a UGA student with an exchange student to help their transition to UGA. Responsibilities include guiding them to the appropriate contact with any questions they may have, being a social contact for them, and generally checking in on them and their time here for the semester. Think of it as you are their first friend at UGA, and maybe in the US! The time commitment is up to you, we just ask that you be friendly and open to your exchange buddy. 

If you decide to participate in the buddy program, you will receive involvement credit for GELC.

Please contact Xchanged Life VP Emily Mayville (ecm49805@uga.edu) with any questions.
