Read All About It!
The latest International House Times newsletter is evidence of the unique value of I-House as a resource for global understanding. We hope you enjoy this issue, which highlights diversity at I-House, a rare glimpse into the 2018 summer session, and guidelines to help address different conflict styles. Plus, you’ll find student reflections, campus-wide initiatives, event photos, alumni news, and much more.
As always, we welcome your feedback and news for next newsletter at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Apply to Host the World
Every year, volunteers, alumni, staff, and friends sign up for our Host Family Program to occasionally host an I-House resident for a dinner, a mini trip, an evening of conversation, or a holiday event. The goal is to ease the international student’s transition to their surroundings and to help them understand the local community and way of life. Hosts offer so much more that can be shared: cultural revelations, new perspectives on life, surprises, fun, and friendship. The commitment is minimal, but the rewards are great!
New for 2018: Participating residents are added to an interactive map by country (example below) with details about what they’re studying, their interests, and what they’re looking forward to this year. Host families are then able to choose residents to meet with from their location on the map.
Host Family Program Kick-off Reception
Join us on Sunday, September 16th, from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm for the kick-off event for all participating hosts and residents. It is also a wonderful opportunity for anyone interested to learn more about the program. Please RSVP by emailing Gemma Givens at email@example.com.
Learn more about this special program and apply on the Host Family Program webpage.
