Openings remain in LWC International Friendship Program

By Duane Bonifer

COLUMBIA, KY - A few openings remain for area families who want to be part of Lindsey Wilson College's "International Friendship Program."

The program helps the college's international students adjust to life in Southcentral Kentucky, according the LWC Director of International Student Programs Sabine M. Eastham.

Host families meet with LWC international students three times a semester to discuss life and culture in the region, Eastham said.

"Our host families join their student for a meal on campus, in town or in their home," Eastham said. "They also might watch televised sports events together or a game at Lindsey Wilson -- and host families receive a season pass to all Blue Raider athletic events.

"Host families essentially do with international students what they think their child would need and appreciate if they were studying in a foreign country."

LWC expects 109 international students from 41 countries to be enrolled this school year, which begins August 19, 2015.
