Main Campus Undergraduate Programs:
Conversation Partner Program:
The Office of International Services sponsors the Conversation Partner Program, which pairs non-English-speaking students and scholars with English-speaking students for one-on-one, informal conversation in English. The program promotes and encourages cultural awareness and understanding, helps international students understand and adapt to U.S. culture, and provides both participants the opportunity to see the world from another perspective and create a rewarding new friendship. The Conversation Partner Program is considered a CHAT event. Please apply below:
Host Family Program:
The Office of International Services partners with American families willing to open their home and share their culture with international students coming to study in the U.S. This is a great way to get acquainted with the beauty of small-town America, while also feeling like you have a home away from home.

International Orientation Leader Program:
Each semester, the Office of International Services searches for students who can put themselves in the shoes of international students and help them when they arrive at Trine University. International Orientation Leaders are volunteers who serve a variety of purposes during orientation. Contact Mari McHenry for more information. Interested in applying? Please fill out below:
