ISP seeks hosts for LWC International students
By Sabine Eastham, Director
Lindsey Wilson College International Student Program
Hosts do not house international students. Rather they agree to have regular contact with the students throughout the school year. It usually involves having them to your house a few times a year for a meal or special event and checking in on them periodically to make sure they are adjusting to American life. When our college's international students return to their home country, they will tell their family all about America and what they have found here in Columbia with their host family.
We are looking for area families and individuals to participate in LWC's "International Friendship Program" and serve as host families for LWC's international students. We are very fortunate to have such a fantastic network of local host families. When area families get involved with our international students, they become part of a ripple effect. They play a big part in introducing international students to American life. Sharing local and family traditions with international students will help them understand what America is all about. They are young, they are here in Columbia, and they are eager to learn about American life beyond the college campus.
I could write much more about this fantastic opportunity, but what would be better than sharing what our local hosts have said:
