Are you looking for ways to get involved with international activities on campus? Check out the list below of events, activities and organizations with an international theme or focus!

Conversation Partners & Language Cafe

The Conversation Partner program provides a great opportunity to practice speaking the language you are studying and to learn greetings and important phrases from other countries. It's an online system that serves as a tool to meet somebody on campus and develop a friendship, with the goal of hopefully meeting a speaker with whom you can do a language exchange. The Language Cafe creates a comfortable environment for you to meet your conversation partner and share your campus and career experiences while offering a great place to begin your global journey. 

Exploring culture through conversations, The Language Cafe creates an environment where people gain deeper cross cultural understanding through multilingual conversations. It provides an opportunity for Georgia Tech grad and undergraduates, faculty, staff and alumni and Language Institute students, to socialize and practice speaking a second language. Please visit the Language Institute's website for more information.
