The Missoula International Friendship Program pairs international students with local residents, called Community Friends. The pairing takes place at the beginning of the semester. It is suggested that the Community Friend and his/her student get together once a month, but may do so more often if both parties concur. The MIFP program does not involve home-stays; it is designed to facilitate friendship and cultural exchange between Community Friends and students through their occasional activities.
