East Asia Riverside

The Riverside Global Program is a friendship-based cultural exchange program where InterVarsity students are paired with East Asian students. These relationships provide an ideal way for students from both cultures to learn about each other. American students get an insider's view of East Asia through the eyes of their East Asian partner, while East Asian students get the opportunity to hone their English skills and build a friendship with an American student.
