This video highlights one of Global Buddies' most recent, and adventurous, social events to date. This May, the Global Buddies program organized its first annual Amazing Race event modeled after the Amazing Race reality game show. Participants teamed up to decipher clues, complete challenges and be the first to cross the finish line. The idea behind the event was to introduce international students to different parts of Iowa City and give them the opportunity to interact with other Global Buddies members.
Global Buddies is a registered UI student organization that matches new international exchange students with domestic students, often study abroad returnees, on campus. In addition to meeting with their buddy, members can also attend a weekly social hour. The group also organizes one large social event or activity per month.
