Friends of International Students

Friends of International Students (FIS) program matches international students with people in the Shoals who are interested in making a friendship. 

This program is currently on hiatus due to staffing changes. Please check back with us in 2024.

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.
