International Student Orientation: International Student and Scholar Services is looking for Faculty & Staff who are willing to host new international & exchange students for a meal in their home. Approximately 25 new students will be arriving to Minneapolis in late August for orientation.

Here are the details:
You will meet your students at 5:30 p.m. in the Oyate Commons on Thursday, August 30. We are asking for you to host 3-4 students and drive them to your home for a meal. We ask that you bring them back by around 8:30 p.m. If you are interested, please email Angela Bonfiglio, International Student Advisor at bonfigli@augsburg.edu. We are looking for around 8 hosts.
