Friends of International Students Host Program

Dear Faculty and Staff–

International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) invites you to become a part of our Friends of International Students Host Program for our incoming February students.

The program provides a terrific opportunity for you to meet people from around the world, and to connect with a student in an individual way.
It’s a friendship program. Contacts between student and family are arranged on your own terms.
Most of the students participate in our program, so we always need new hosts.

If you are interested in exploring the possibility of serving as a host to an international student, please contact Carolyn Dahm, ISSS Administrative Coordinator, by email at isss@middlebury.edu or by telephone at 443-5858. (Your email reply will go directly to the ISSS Office mailbox. In either your email or phone message, please provide your name, email address, and phone number.)
To learn more about the Friends of International Students (FIS) Host Program and to fill out the FIS Host Questionnaire , visit our website at http://www.middlebury.edu/international/isss/fis.
Please share this information with friends and family who do not work at the College. We look forward to hearing from you!
