Global Friendship Program
The Global Friendship Program (formerly known as the PAWS Program) is a longstanding tradition at Baylor. International students/scholars and U.S. students and families have been connecting and building lasting relationships for many years. We hear stories from both international students and their student friends and families that participating in the GFP has been a rewarding experience.
