Buddy System

The Buddy System is a student-to-student program developed for the benefit of the international incoming students to Gordon Academic College and our students.   This program aims to create peer-bonds between Gordon's College Israeli and international students that will also facilitate the international students' first steps in Israel and provide our students with an opportunity to form a relationship with a person from abroad.

The program at Gordon College is run by Gordon's international Center, and the purpose is to have our incoming students connected to our Israeli students so that they can learn from a student’s perspective about Gordon College as well as the things students do in Haifa and the surrounding areas.   This program also provides an opportunity for our students to plan joint activities. By providing the international students to our students at Gordon College, not only will the incoming students gain support in learning about being a student at Gordon College, but also this program connects our incoming students with the people and culture of our city of Haifa and Israel.
