Despite UC Davis' huge campus and large student population, it can be difficult to make friends across cultures. That is where the Pal Program can help. The program has helped international students connect to the diversity of America by introducing them to new friends. Jane Kim is an international student from South Korea, and she is a huge fan of the Pal program. She has joined the program every quarter for two years, and she wants to share her meaningful experiences with the program.
