About Lobo Friends
The "Lobo Friends" program is a peer mentoring program offered by the Global Education Office at UNM. The mission of the program is to foster communication and friendship between U.S. and international students. Local students will have the opportunity to share their knowledge of the UNM and Albuquerque area, while expanding their knowledge of other countries and cultures. While, international students will benefit from getting to know a U.S. student as soon as they arrive, which will hopefully lead to an easier transition to life at UNM.
We hope that by matching international students with American friends, the ease of cultural adjustment for international students will be enhanced while increasing global competency and cross-cultural understanding at UNM.
