Apply to spend Thanksgiving with a local San Diego family.

The International Students & Programs Office is seeking current UC San Diego international students (undergraduate and graduate)  who would like to be hosted by a San Diego Community Member for a Thanksgiving meal celebration. This year, the Thanksgiving holiday is celebrated on Thursday, November 22nd, however hosts do not necessarily have to hold their meal on the day that the holiday is officially observed. For example, a Student Guest may be invited to a Thanksgiving meal celebration during the Saturday following the official Thanksgiving holiday.
