Applications For International Student Pen Pal Program Now Open

Applications to be a mentor or mentee for Global Penn State’s Penn State Pals Program are now open.

The program pairs incoming international students with current Penn State students to gain a better understanding of the university and the United States before arriving on campus. Mentors and mentees typically discuss a number of topics including college life, classes, finances, sports and athletics, downtown life, and more.

The initiative was created by the International Student Council and UPUA.

Both mentor and mentee pairs are required to follow coronavirus social distancing guidelines if they choose to meet in person. Once on campus, weekly communication between mentors and mentees is expected to be continued while program-wide events are offered as well. Mentors and mentees will also be required to fill out monthly surveys to check the health of the mentor and mentee relationship status.

The application to become a mentor is open, as well as registration to be a mentee. More information on the program can be found here.
