International Studies & Programs

Home Visits

Home visits are arranged by committee volunteers once each semester. They invite international guests to a variety of area homes once each semester for refreshments, conversation, and a first-hand look at the way Americans live.

If you would like to help arrange home visits as a Home Visits Committee member, please fill out a Community Volunteer Application.
