Welcome to the International Friends Program

“Making lasting connections between USU’s international students and scholars, and the families and community in Cache Valley”

IFP welcomes participation by international students, scholars, and community members.  Join our Facebook Group Page for the most recent information : USU International Friends Program

During this time of the Covid-19 pandemic, some activities of IFP have been suspended, but they will resume as quickly as it is safe and reasonable to do so.  Presently, our Hiking and Conversation Partners programs are active. If students or community members would like a conversation partner to make a friend and practice English, please contact us at so that we can help you connect.

We will be resuming our Holiday Hosting program at Thanksgiving in 2021. Please select the button below and fill in the appropriate form to participate in this program.

Our goal is to encourage meaningful cultural exchanges and the formation of lasting connections that benefit both student and community members.
