IHC Friendship Groups
IHC Friendship Groups are informal groups of Americans and international visitors who meet on a regular basis.
IMPORTANT: Due to the coronavirus and the policies of the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and of the CDC (Center for Disease Control) all of our IHC programs and classes are available in a virtual format. Please contact the respective IHC program coordinator for details.
We invite you to participate as your schedule allows. Through a variety of activities, participants share fun and friendship with many from other cultures. International visitors learn more about the Champaign-Urbana area and practice speaking English.
*This schedule also includes the meeting times for the IHC English Classes.
Participants also have the opportunity of becoming leaders of a Friendship Group. Leaders are responsible for communication to participants about upcoming meetings. They also elicit ideas from them to help set the agenda for the meetings.
