Experience

" I consider Minnesota my home in the US because of my lovely Friendship Family! I am the only child in my family until I met the Duncans, now I have a little brother and sister!"
- Yun-Chen Wu (Tina) , Undergraduate Exchange Student, Taiwan

" Participating in the Friendship Family program has been an exciting experience for me. I have been given a first class ticket to travel the globe. My Friendship Family partners have shared their language, culture and passion to learn. This has been a memorable experience as I have broadened my horizons and made lifelong friendships."

- Artika Tyner, Law Faculty, Minnesota
