UW-Eau Claire seeks host friends for international students

RELEASED: Feb. 28, 2011

EAU CLAIRE — The Center for International Education at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire invites Chippewa Valley community members to become hosts for international students arriving for the 2011 fall semester.

The Host Friend Program encourages intercultural sharing and understanding. Host friends assist with international students' adjustment to American life and culture, while the students offer a unique cultural perspective of their own.

Hosts provide a three-day home stay for students before they move into their residence halls at the beginning of their first semester, and hosts and their students stay in touch for activities and outings throughout the students' time at UW-Eau Claire.

For more information, contact the CIE community outreach coordinator at hostfriend@uwec.edu or 715-836-4411 or visit the Host Friend Program website.
