Be a Pen Pal


The FIUTS Pen Pal program is a quarterly letter exchange between UW international students and local elementary school students. Pen Pals send and receive 4 letters to each other over a period of 6-8 weeks. At the end of the program, pen pals get to meet in-person on the University of Washington campus at a special celebration!
