International Student Orientation: Looking for Faculty Hosts January 10

submitted by

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 9-12 new students will be arriving to Minneapolis in early January for Orientation.  At the end of their orientation week, we would love to have students have the opportunity to connect more with a faculty or staff on campus, make connections, and have the chance to be in someone’s home. Students have said it is the highlight of their week. 

Here are the details: You will meet students at 4:30pm in the Oyaté Commons (Christensen Center Suite 2) on Friday January 10th. We are asking for you to host 2-4 students and drive them to your home for a meal.  We ask that you bring them back to campus by around 7:30 pm. It helps to be hosting with someone, whether that is your partner, family or you can pair with another faculty or staff on campus. 

If you are interested, please email Angela Bonfiglio at We are looking for around 5 hosts.
