|IWU is expecting a large number of new international students for the fall|
term (our biggest yet !). Each year at about this time, we start looking
for people who might be interested in hosting new students in their home
We are looking for individuals, families, partners, couples or friends who
would like to host a "Welcome Dinner" on Sunday, Aug. 17, 2014. Volunteers
would host two students in their home (one time only): pick up the students
at 5 p.m. for dinner; follow with a walk through your neighborhood, a drive
around town, or ice cream at your favorite place; and return the student to
campus at about 8 p.m.
We have done this for a number of years and have found that a simple home dinner is truly memorable for our students. Some of our regular hosts enjoy having a small group of students and due to the large number we are expecting, I welcome your inquiry if you'd like to take on a few extras. Also, if you could host a student who chooses a vegetarian diet, please let me know.
I realize that most personal calendars are not yet set. If this dinner opportunity interests you, please contact me and I will put your
name on the "interested" list and we will check with you early in August to see if
Aug. 17 is still a good date for you.
My sincere thanks,
International Student/Scholar Advisor
