How are host families chosen?

Each homestay is different. Some host families include a husband, a wife, and children; some are single professionals; and some are retired couples. Each host brings their own unique approach to welcoming students into their home lives.

All host families are chosen for their warm hospitality, gracious homes, and close proximity to the universities and programs we serve. Each host family must submit an extensive application with criminal record checks and personal references, and be interviewed in their home before they can be accepted as hosts.
