THANKSGIVING EXCHANGE PROGRAM

The Thanksgiving Exchange program gives UC San Diego international students a one-of-a-kind opportunity to celebrate the Thanksgiving Day holiday with an American host family in and around the San Diego area. This year, Thanksgiving Day will be held on Thursday, November 28th.

This program is a wonderful opportunity for both international students and host family members to learn more about each others’ cultures and meet new friends.  It is a great way for international students to learn firsthand about American culture, and spend time with an American family. Many students and host families are returning participants each year!

Last year, over 50 families hosted almost 130 international students!
