International students seeking opportunities to immerse in Canadian traditions

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, 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.”

New this year, the International Student Centre will host an information session on Wednesday, September 19, from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. in the CAW Student Centre Commons.

Stop by the table to speak with a host and a student participant to learn more about this great opportunity to host an international student. If you have ever hosted a student or been a student participant, you are welcome to drop by and share your experiences.
