Host an International Student!

We need new hosts!! ISSS is still recruiting hosts for our Friends of International Students (FIS) host program for students from the Classes of 2024-2026. Our population of international students includes some U.S. students who have lived abroad as well as international exchange students. Please contact us if you are interested in hosting in the fall and spread the word in our community.

International Student & Scholar Services will hold a series of Zoom information meetings about the program in August and September. We ask that new hosts attend a meeting so that we can meet them and share more information about the program. If you are an experienced host, you are welcome to join us as your stories and insights are vital to friends who are new to FIS and trying to decide if they would be a good fit for the program.

Join us for one of these upcoming Zoom information meetings:

  • Wednesday, September 7, 12:30-1:30 pm
