The Office of International Students & Scholars would like to re-introduce the International Host Program for the 2013-2014 academic year. The purpose of the Host Program is to create a wider community for Trinity College's international students. We believe that providing students with an expanded Global Village will contribute to their success in college both personally and socially. Host programs allow students to learn about the daily life of diverse members of American society and promote deeper cross-cultural awareness and understanding.
 
As the Thanksgiving and Holiday Breaks are quickly coming upon us, I’d like to put a call out to all faculty and staff to volunteer to host an international student for the breaks. The students will stay on campus during the breaks so there is no need to provide housing. Instead, we ask that you consider inviting a student or two along to your Thanksgiving dinner or to meet with them for dinner over the break. The expectation is that the host would meet with the student once a month for the remainder of the academic year for some type of activity of the host and student's choosing. Typically, this involves a meal of some sort but it would not be limited to that. It can include shopping, cultural activities, sharing a holiday tradition, or any activity that seems particularly meaningful and interesting to the host and student.
 
If you are interested in this program, please fill out an application at this link. The deadline to apply is November 22. Please contact me should you have any questions!
