Invitation: Friends of International Students Host Program Information Meeting, Monday, Sept. 22

International Student & Scholar Services invites you to learn more about our Friends of International Students (FIS) host program.

  • 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 will need many new hosts.

If you are interested in exploring the possibility of serving as a host to an international student, please register to attend an information meeting. Our final meeting will be on:

  • Monday, September 22, from 12:15 – 1:00 p.m.

The meeting will be held in the Carr Hall Lounge (Carr Hall is at 452 College Street). Please feel free to bring your lunch to the mid-day meeting.

TO REGISTER: Please contact ISSS, by email at or by telephone at 443-5858. (In your message, please provide your name, email address, and phone number, and which meeting you plan to attend.)

Even if you have been a host in the past, please register for a meeting, both to share your experiences with potential hosts and to learn about the upcoming year of the FIS program!

We hope you will be able to join us. However, if you cannot attend a session and are interested in the program, please let us know.

Please also share this information with friends and family who do not work at the College as we welcome their participation.
