The Friends program is a two-week program at the beginning of the semester that seeks to help you settle into MSU and become acquainted with Bozeman more easily. The program is open to all incoming international exchange students and first semester degree seeking international students. The program pairs you with a current MSU student who will contact you before you arrive to answer any questions in advance. Once you get here they can help you find your books, show you around campus, the town, and any other miscellaneous things you might need help with. The program kicks off with a party in the recreation center on campus and we will have an off campus event as well. It’s a great way to meet other international students and MSU students! Many past students have stayed friends with their buddies long after the program ended. Please complete this application below to register for the program. If you have any questions, please email

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Please note: This program is not a dating service nor is it associated with religious outreach.
