MSU domestic and international students are getting a chance to learn about a culture different than their own.

Around 70 students paired up today to build cross-cultural relationships.

It's a partnership between an education course called Human Relations in a Multicultural Society and the International Center.

The students are required to spend at least nine hours together over the semester, including Tuesday's first interview session.

"We're looking to help them gain knowledge and experience, as well as mentorship and reflection so that they can change their own behavior to fit into other cultures," Professor Elizabeth Sandell said.

This is the 8th semester for the partnership project.
