Some churches around Biola (Calvary Chapel and Granada Heights Friends Church) offer a special program for international students to improve their conversation skills. Native language speakers meet with students once a week to improve their listening and speaking skills.
International Students Association (ISA)
This is the association for undergraduate international students. They have weekly meetings and organize a lot of fun activities at the weekends. This is a great way to get connected with other internationals!

The association for international graduate students focusses on meeting the special needs for international students. They offer help for arriving students who are in the process of adjusting to their new environment and culture.
