Treat yourself to a unique learning experience! Students often say that the Friendship Family program is the most meaningful and influential experience while studying at Ball State.
Each week the Rinker Center for International Programs (RCIP) holds a presentation in the Pittenger Student Center (Yuhas Room) from noon to 1 p.m. highlighting different countries by offering natives a chance to share an insider’s look into their country and culture. We call this the Culture Exchange program.
This program connects new international students with American students in a relaxed and pleasant manner as they discover what comes “next” for the purpose of friendship and cultural exchange.
International Sip & Chat is currently held the third Friday of every month from 3pm -4:30pm in the Yuhas Room of the Rinker Center. It is open to all students, faculty, Staff and community members. The specific date and time may change each semester.
Our speaker series is a great opportunity to share your culture with the Muncie community.
