The Global Siblings program pairs one international student with one domestic student for the academic year. International students vary widely in their experiences abroad. Some students may have extensive experiences working, traveling and studying in the United States, while for others, this may be their first experience outside of their country. As a result, domestic siblings are asked to help facilitate their international sibling’s transition and experience at UCLA according to his/her needs. On the other hand, it is not just a one way relationship. Domestic students gain the benefits of learning about a new culture and different perspectives. In addition, they create friendships with students from all over the world!

Dear Mr. Ericksen:

First I'd like to thank you for directing such an amazing place as Dashew Center, I as an international student appreciate all your work and programs. I'm writing you to give you some feedback about the trip to Yosemite. This was the best trip ever, I'm really glad you are looking into new directions to integrate international students and this trip has been my best experience at UCLA (I'm starting my third year as a graduate student). Jennie and all her staff organized perfectly this trip. The hotel was good as well as all the activites they programmed. My expectations were completely overcome by their work. Not only we had an amazing time, they always tried to integrate everyone to form one group. We worked as a team and now I think that all of us will never forget this three lovely persons that made this trip a reallity. Thank you very much.
