What is a Buddy?

Buddy is the student helping students. The person, who creates the very first contact with an exchange student; who offers his/her time, care, friendship. The Buddy represents the country, introduces to the culture and makes sure the foreign student feels comfortable and welcomed. Yet above it all, a buddy is a FRIEND.
