Bucknell's International Friendship Host Program matches American 'host' families with International Students At Bucknell. Being far away from home, sometimes for the first time, can be hard on some people, combined with scarce opportunities to go home. So our students are always happy to make a "home away from home". host family

We have students from all across the world; Croatia, France, South Africa, Russia, China, Brazoil and many, many more! The level of interaction is completely up to the combined efforts of the student and the host family, providing all with the opportunity to share culture and community.

This is a great opportunity for both student and host family to meet new people and learn new things collectively.

Students: download an application and return by September 13 to the ISS office in ELC, 064.
