Apply to be a Thanksgiving Holiday Host Family

Thank you for offering to share your Thanksgiving dinner with an International Student!

This is an amazing program to participate in! Often, it is the only time our UCSD international students have the chance to meet an American family and be in an American home. It is so meaningful for them and they would love to share their wonderful culture with you! Thanksgiving is on Thurs., Nov. 23rd this year but, as a host family, you do not necessarily have to hold their meal on the day that the holiday is officially observed.

We will match students with hosts on a first-come, first-served basis. While it is possible that there will not be enough hosts or students for all interested parties, every effort will be made to satisfy as many requests as possible.
