Interested in going on an exchange but have no idea where to start? This was something I’ve been thinking for awhile now and while I’m not yet ready to actually go off to a foreign country by myself, I realized that I can take some small steps to get closer to making it a reality rather than just thinking about it. One way to get exposed to a variety of cultures without leaving the country is to get involved with the SFU International Mentorship Program.
By becoming a mentor, you get paired up with 3 to 4 international students for a semester. It’s a great way to find out more about another country by hearing firsthand accounts from your mentees and getting the real scoop! Don’t forget about the social events such as biking at Stanley Park or the evening potlucks for some ethnic home cooking! Yum! For more information click here.
