 International Buddy Program
 (Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus)

The International Buddy Program was created as an additional resource for international students.  An international student can be defined as a student holding any type of visa.  It is intended to provide a working relationship between current international students studying at Montgomery College and past students who have either graduated or transferred from Montgomery College.

The process of adjustment to a new community may be difficult, especially if there are language and cultural differences.  Therefore, the goal of the International Buddy Program is to help students adjust to the social, academic and cultural environment at Montgomery College, Takoma Park/Silver Spring.  The primary mode of communication between the mentor and mentee is email, unless otherwise agreed upon by both parties. If you would like to enroll in the International Buddy Program, please contact Eniola Olowofoyeku  to obtain an application and to schedule an interview.

The International Buddy Program is not intended to replace the services of the International Student Coordinator or College Advisor.  If a student has any concerns regarding visa status or class registration, etc., he/she should be directed to the appropriate authority.  Participation in the International Buddy Program is entirely voluntary.  Both mentor and mentee can terminate the relationship at any time. Please contact Dr. Harold Barber or Professor Eniola Olowofoyeku prior to doing so.  You must  be currently registered for classes to participate as a mentee  in this program. If you are not, please notify the International Buddy Coordinator immediately.
