With the end of the semester rapidly approaching, the LWC International Student Program (ISP) is excitedly preparing to greet a new cohort of students for the upcoming Spring semester!
The college currently has 140+ students enrolled representing 44 different countries, and ISP is expecting over 40 more students to join next semester--dozens of which will have the opportunity to be matched with families as part of our Host Family Program.
ISP is fortunate enough to partner with families from the local community who are willing to host and befriend these students during the school year. Host families DO NOT provide housing for the students. Instead, host families provide friendship and a support system here in America to make the transition to and time in the U.S. a little bit easier. ISP is currently asking for new families to join the program and help create a friendly, comforting, home-away-from-home atmosphere here at LWC for each international student.
What is a traditional host "family?" The answer is the same as if one were to ask "what is a typical American tradition?" Host families, like traditions, come in all shapes and sizes and are what you make them! It is what makes YOU a family, it is what is YOUR tradition.
Let's hear a heartfelt comment by a member of the program, host parent Scott Dillary, who says that "Being a host family for one international student has helped me to be more aware of the situations for all international students and to consider how I might aid in their adjustment to being far away from home."
A veteran host parent of over 10 years, Carri Peterson, says "I cannot recommend this program highly enough. Our international students have expanded our world and enriched our lives. These are some of the best people on the planet. Run, do not walk, to sign up to share your life with a student who is far from home. You will not regret it."
For those interested in more information about this program, you can contact ISP at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would prefer to speak with one of our host parents, to hear about their experience, ISP can also put you in touch with some of our veteran host parents who love to share their experience with you and answer any concerns or questions you might have.
