International Guest FAQs
By signing up for the program, the International Center asks you to be sure to attend the Thanksgiving holiday event that your host has so graciously invited you to. The Coordinator matches 2 students with the families and if you have a friend that would like to join you, please let the Coordinator know. It is expected that Student Guests contact their host via email or telephone to make plans and arrangements for the Thanksgiving event and make every effort to attend the meal, as the families have made arrangements for you to join their friends and family for Thanksgiving. If you cannot attend the meal, please let the Coordinator know at least 2 days before Thanksgiving and if an emergency does come up on Thanksgiving Day, please let the host family know right away that you will not be able to attend.
Thanksgiving holiday events occur at various times depending on the host’s plans. Hosts are not expected to provide overnight housing to their Student Guest.
The International Center is not responsible for assisting with making plans and arrangements between Student Guests and Hosts is not available to provide transportation for Student Guests.
