Campus community invited to play holiday host to international students

The University of Windsor’s International Student Centre will once again be sponsoring its annual Host for the Holidays program this Thanksgiving and is reaching out to generous faculty and staff members willing to share a traditional holiday meal and a taste of Canadian culture with international students.

“Students new to Canada are on an educational adventure and are always keen to meet new people and share Canadian cultural traditions,” says Beth Oakley, acting director of the International Student Centre.

“This is also a great opportunity for people in the community to get to know an international student and showcase some of what makes Canada a great place to live.”

As a new incentive for community participation this year, the centre will donate $200 to the student food bank in the name of one host drawn at random. Hosts are invited to apply at: http://webapps.uwindsor.ca/international/holidays/forms/host/.
