Conversation partners

"Normally, I would be too nervous to have lengthy conversations with non-native speakers of English, but through this program I have learned to take chances, because great friendships can stem from a simple hello." 

ECPP

"I made a couple of friendships that I am grateful for because they’ve helped me become more interested in the lives of other international students."

Conversation partners

"We have a lot in common with students from other countries. Participating in this program helped me realize that we actually do have a lot of starting points for conversation. We just have to be willing to say something first.

ECPP

"We got into some spirited debates about religion, so it helped me to think more critically and closely about what I believe."

"Communicating with students from different cultures is immensely important, and has numerous benefits. Everyone's story is unique, and important to tell."
