The Host Family Experience

International students experience daily American home life and increase their cultural awareness by living with host families. In addition to providing a safe, secure environment, meals, and ensuring transportation to/from school, host families care for their student and consider them to be a part of the family. This arrangement ensures an authentic cultural experience for our international students and also enables them to expand their language proficiency outside of their academic program.
