Friends of International Students

Friends of International Students (FIS) matches international students with people in the Shoals who are interested in meeting them and helping them during their studies. If you are a UNA international student wanting to participate in this program, please contact Monica Marthaler in the OIA office in Powers Hall.

How do I get involved?

Volunteers should fill out and submit this application. We try to match the interests and other requests made by the applicants, but do ask that the volunteer be open to a variety of students that come to UNA. We encourage being matched with a pair of students. The students are more relaxed and the interaction/conversation is more natural.
