iPal is a buddy program designed to connect international and American students/faculty/staff at Maryville University.  The program helps international students adjust to a new cultural environment and allows them to gain confidence in English while learning about  U.S. culture and building friendships through meetings with American students/faculty/staff.

iPal participants are invited to attend Global Link which is a series of events for all participants of the program. It’s a great opportunity to meet other participants, see country presentations and discuss world cultures and traditions.
