Homestay/Buddy Family Program
These programs are intended to facilitate cultural and language interactions between international students and local Korean families. Through the Homestay Program, you can deeply immerse yourself in the Korean way of life by living with a Korean family at their home. The Buddy Family Program provides similar experiences without having to live with a Korean family at their home.
Every month, Global Lounge organizes a variety of cultural events on a selected country for one or two days to provide an opportunity to learn about and enjoy different cultures of the world.
This program is designed for international students to facilitate a deeper understanding of Korean culture and traditions. International students participate in various activities including trips to cultural and historic sites, folk craft workshops, farm stays, temple stays and other events on Korea Day.
