  • Sign up to be a host family for an international student - Note: not a homestay program

    389609 10150872099883273 1173624735 N 274X183Many thoughts may come to mind when hearing the words “host family,” and because of misconceptions, many of us may not seek out more information for fear of time commitments or the responsibility we believe comes with hosting. Some may not even be aware that the opportunity to host an international student is offered at USI.

    Any employee of USI can host an international student through the Host Family Program. We have students from 50 countries: some who are here to obtain a degree and some who are here as an exchange student for a semester or a year. Being a host does not mean they stay in your home. There are no financial obligations. A host is not there for tutoring purposes or to sort through immigration regulations.

    A host is, quite simply, is a friend. Whether it’s a cup of coffee on campus, a ride to a store, an invitation to an occasional dinner, attending a sporting event, strolling through an art gallery or seeing a movie, the experience is what you make it. (Find out more...)
