On 3 September 2021, the Global Relations Division arranged the Virtual Dinner X Buddy activity for new international students to share their dinners while interact with Thai buddies and friends from other Schools. 50 full-time and exchange international students from China, Korea, Nigeria, Bhutan, Myanmar, Germany, Czech Republic participated this event both online and on campus.
This virtual dinner was a part of “the e-Buddy Programme” which was organised by the Global Relations Division with an aim to welcome and help all new international students both staying on campus and overseas prepare for their transition to campus life before they arrive at Mae Fah Luang University. With this programme, 76 Thai students have been matched with 181 undergraduate and graduate students. During the programme, they will assist their “buddies” with the questions and useful information in order to help new students adapt to the new living, cultural and educational environments of the university smoothly.
