ISS's BRIDGE program helps new international students connect with American students. New international students learn about the university, the community, the culture, and participate in many cultural and social activities with their own American BRIDGE Partner, and the American Partner also benefits by learning about cultures, beliefs, and traditions that are different from their own.Information on embassies in the US is available at http://www.embassy.org.
