Become an Otter Buddy!

English & Academic Tutoring

CSUMB’s Otter Buddy Program matches California CSUMB students with international CSUMB students in order to promote intercultural friendship and awareness. This Buddy Program includes a mutual agreement to share personal reflection (e.g. culture shock, political issues) as well as participate in activities together.

This video was produced by exchange student and Cinematic Arts & Technology Major, Tomoaki Yui of Dokkyo University (Sōka, Japan) with help from Ali Hamza of Østfold University College (Halden, Norway) and Alba Uruñuela of the Universidad de Deusto (Bilbao, Spain).
