The primary purpose of this program is to smooth the transition for new international student to PEI and UPEI by providing further assistance and support in the form of the Buddy Program. This provides assistance on a student to student basis.By providing support to new international students in terms of: adapting to a new setting and culture, new norms and traditions, and in general, just providing a friend on campus; it helps create a more relaxed and hospitable atmosphere for new incoming international students.The secondary purpose, which in my opinion is just as important as the first, is to HAVE FUN! Throughout the semester the buddy coordinator will be hosting events so all of you can have some fun activities to do between your arduous study sessions. Not only that but you get the chance to befriend more than just your buddy, but other buddies and volunteers as well! That is the gist of it.
