The Global Siblings program pairs one international student with one domestic student for the academic year. Sibling pairs are then grouped into themed families, where they can further foster cross-cultural friendships with UCLA students from around the world. Domestic and international students are able to share their own unique cultural backgrounds and experiences with their sibling and their family. Global Siblings is a great resource for international students at any stage in their transition to life at UCLA, and for any domestic student hoping to learn about new cultures and global perspectives.
Global Siblings Family
In addition to gaining a sibling, all participants are divided into families (half international and half domestic). Each family will have a designated theme that encompasses one shared interest of all family members (e.g. Arts and Culture). Under the guidance of Global Siblings Coordinators, families participate in various activities each quarter. Global Siblings families provide members a great opportunity to connect with others who hold similar interests, build a support system, and learn about various cultures from around the world!
Potential Family Interest Groups Include:
- Outdoor Adventures (Hiking & Camping)
- Arts/Culture (Dance & Music)
- Arts/Culture (Film & Theater)
